Who can refer?
Healthcare professionals may refer any patients with advanced cancer, or any other advanced, progressive and life limiting non-malignant disease, where the complexity of the illness needs the services of a specialist palliative care team to achieve control of symptoms and social, psychological and spiritual support to the patient and family. Patient's who are already known to Isabel Hospice can also be re-referred back to the service.
Individuals who reside in care homes can be referred for specialist advice directly from care home professionals or via General Practitioners. Referrals are accepted for symptom control and psychological support for both the patient and family. To make a referral, please go to our Professionals referral page.
