St John's Hospice is a 15-bedded Specialist Palliative Care Unit providing short-term symptom control and end-of-life care.  There is also a small day unit which offers some out-patient treatments on an appointment basis.  Referral to the hospice must be from a healthcare professional such as GP, District Nurse or Macmillan Nurse. There is a holistic ethos of assessment and management by the multi-disciplinary team and an emphasis on promoting quality of life for all patients.

Availability

Hospice provides 24-hour care for in-patients.

 

PEPS coordination centre (Partnership for Excellence in Palliative Support).

This is a 24 hour telephone advice and support line run by experienced palliative care nurses which aims to support patients in the last year of life who are at home. The service also liaises with other professional groups to organise the care of these patients, thus enabling improved coordination and partnership working between services. 

 

NB: The direct phone number for the PEPS team is not made widely available as it is reserved for those patients that are referred and meet the criteria.  For general enquiries the PEPS team can be reached via the St John's Hospice main number (Tel: 01767 642410).
