The Nurse-led Inpatient Unit was opened in 2003 in The Woodlands building.
In 2016 it moved to a purpose-built, hotel standard building, with 10 individual en-suite bedrooms each with a patio area or balcony, which look out onto our peaceful garden.
The Inpatient Unit has a team of highly specialised staff including a Nurse Consultant and Clinical Nurse Specialist, who with the rest of the team are on hand to give you and your family the best possible care. The team will work with other hospice teams including complementary therapists, counselors, social workers and Lymphoedema Nurse Specialist to help with the physical, emotional, social or spiritual impact of your illness.
The Inpatient Unit provides symptom control, end of life care and crisis intervention.
