Referrals to adult services

Who can refer?

We accept referrals from General Practitioners, Consultants, or other healthcare professionals in consultation with a patient’s Doctor.

Adult patients from Newcastle, North Tyneside, Northumberland and Gateshead can be referred to us.

Our core palliative services include: an inpatient service, day hospice, outpatient consultant clinics, complementary therapy, ‘Positive Steps’, cognitive behavioural therapy, acupuncture, hypnotherapy and lymphoedema management.

We also provide a Lymphoedema Service to non-palliative care patients.
