In-patient care

If you need extra care and attention our specialist team may be able to help relieve your immediate problems such as pain or breathlessness. They will make sure you are as comfortable as possible.

Our in-patient unit has 30 beds over two floors, and are in small bays of three to four beds overlooking the sea. We have some single rooms which we use according to individual need.

Most people return home within a couple of weeks with the community services they need. We can also arrange for equipment or adaptations to people’s homes.

If you can’t return home because you still need support, we will advise you and your family on how to find nursing or residential care and support you with this proces. Many people come back to our day services for continuing care and support.

We care for some people at the end of their lives making them as comfortable as possible. We also support their carers, families and children.

How to get in-patient care

Ask your GP, clinical nurse specialist or hospital consultant if they think you could benefit from Marie Curie Hospice in-patient services and whether they will refer you.
