Specialist Palliative Care Referral

Message from Wirral Community Health & Care NHS Foundation and Wirral Hospice St John’s to all Wirral health professionals:

From Saturday 1 May 2021, the referral process for Specialist Palliative Care has changed. This is for referrals for BOTH Community Trust and Wirral Hospice St John’s services.

Please use the new Specialist Palliative Care Referral form, and accompanying Specialist Palliative Care Referral information sheet to guide you.

Referrals to Hospice at Home services delivered by Wirral Hospice St John’s and Marie Curie Nursing service (for patients requiring end of life sits) should continue to be made directly via our NHS email/inbox: wih-tr.ReferralsWirralHospice@nhs.net using this Hospice-at-Home-referral-form. NB: Please DO NOT use info@wirralhospice.org email address for referrals or correspondence about patients.

For further information on the new Specialist Palliative Care Referral process, please call 0151 328 0481 or visit: www.wchc.nhs.uk/services/specialist-palliative-care/specialist-palliative-care-team

Thank you
Dr Emma Longford & Charlotte Botes
