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.
Medical clinics are held at the Hospice weekly by the Consultant in Palliative Medicine. The consultant is employed by the Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust and sees patients in a variety of settings across North East Worcestershire.
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.
