Make a referral
We work closely with the NHS and other organisations to enable referrers to send clinical information for referrals electronically. Please check with your organisation to see if you are able to use these systems. If not, please download our Specialist Palliative Care Referral Form and email it to us, using our secure NHS email. Thank you.

Specialist Palliative Care Referral Form
The Specialist Palliative Care Team (SPCT), is a group of health care professionals who provide specialised care and support to patients with life-limiting illness and their families in their own home, alternative care settings and the hospice Inpatient Unit. They work collaboratively to address the physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs of patients, aiming to improve their quality of life and provide comfort and dignity during the end of life stage. The team also works closely with primary care providers and other health care professionals to ensure a comprehensive and coordinated approach to care.
If the patient is in receipt of holistic care and support from the primary care team and symptoms are stable, it may not be appropriate for the SPCT to offer specialised support. Before making a referral please take a look at our referral criteria document (below) for guidance.
