Some patients prefer not to attend the Day Hospice. However, they can still maintain regular professional contact with the Hospice by attending the Clinical Nurse Specialists outpatient clinic.
The nurses are able to provide support, information, symptom management or refer you to other services.
The Consultant in Palliative Medicine who is based at the Princess of Wales Community Hospital in Bromsgrove offers Out Patient appointments at the hospice.
The consultant is employed by Hereford and Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust and also sees patients in a variety of other settings across North East Worcestershire.
If you are known to one of the hospice team, the consultant will try to see you with this team member if possible.
You may be referred directly to see the consultant by your GP or hospital consultant.
Alternatively, the request may come from one of the clinical team at the hospice
