Referral to the hospital palliative care service

The service operates Monday to Friday 8.30am to 4.30pm. All referrals are to adhere to the team criteria.

For patients on the ward:

The Macmillan Co-ordinator, Mrs Helen King should be contacted on Tel: 01723 342446. A referral form should also be completed and faxed through to the team on Fax 01723 342688. This will determine the urgency of the referral and identify the most appropriate member of staff to contact the referrer.

We aim to contact the referring team to discuss the referral within 24 hours or the next working day if the referral is made over the weekend. Patients that require an assessment should be seen within 48 hours or on the same day if the referral is urgent.

For referral to outpatient clinics:

Please fax a referral form to Mrs Helen King, Macmillan Co-ordinator on 017233 342688

We aim to see outpatients within two weeks.

While contagious viruses are active year-round, winter is a prime time for norovirus, colds, influenza (flu), and other respiratory illnesses.


These infections are highly contagious, so we urge people to stay away unless their visit is absolutely essential to help reduce the spread of infection within our hospitals.

Hospitals are full of sick people, many of them frail and elderly, so bringing germs into a hospital is the worst thing you can do.  We have an active programme of infection prevention but we can’t spot visitors who really shouldn’t be here.  Please stay at home if you’re unwell to help aid the wellbeing and recovery of our patients.
