Self-referral (Adults, Young People and Children)

If you would like to refer yourself or a child to access our care and services then, please call 01474 320 007.

Our specialist clinical teams will discuss your referral in detail and advise you on what happens next.

Referred by a healthcare professional

If you have been referred by a healthcare professional, you must:

  • Have, be caring for, or be part of the family of someone with a life-limiting condition
  • Agree to the referral

You could be referred for some of the following reasons:

  • Pain/symptom control
  • Psycho-social support (for patients and families)
  • Spiritual support
  • Complex end of life care
  • End of life decision-making

Your Healthcare professional will provide our teams with copies of any relevant hospital letters and medication details. Referrals may be delayed if insufficient information is provided as this is needed to carry out a full assessment.

On assessment of the referral, we offer a specialist triage service which ensures that you are assessed and seen within appropriate timescales. We provide emergency care and admissions to those who are deemed suitable.
