Making a Referral

Referrals may be made by any health professional involved with the care of the patient, such as GPs and district nurses.

Referrals may be made by any health professional involved with the care of the patient, such as GPs and district nurses or those working in an NHS Trust. All patients (whether previously known to Dove House Hospice or not) can be referred to the hospice on our 24-hour number 01482 785700.

After liaising with a patient's GP our aim is to admit the patient to the Wilberforce Unit within 24 hours of referral, or 8 hours for urgent referrals.
