The Hospice and Supported Care Inpatient Area has six beds which aim to improve the quality of life for people with life limiting conditions, and to address problems such as pain management and symptom control.
The palliative care beds are in single rooms which provide a relaxed and comfortable environment. Four of the rooms are equipped with private en-suite facilities, and all have comfortable armchairs and Freeview equipped televisions.
The Area also contains two NHS Supported Care beds in a large double room. The Area is located on the first floor of the Hospital and may be reached by entering through the main entrance of the Hospital and then following the signs up the main stairs to the first floor. A lift is also available.
The Unit has a multi-disciplinary team which includes NHS nursing staff, social workers, doctors, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, community nurses and Macmillan nurses.
