Patient referral

Individuals are referred to the Hospice either by their GP, Community Macmillan Nurses, District Nurses, hospital Doctors or Oncologists. It can be a frightening time and initially some may be unwilling to attend the Hospice. Before making any decisions, the individual and family members are always welcome to come and look around St Michael’s and meet the staff.

St Michael’s would advise people to discuss the appropriateness of referral with their GP.
