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 offering a mixture of single en-suite rooms and shared accommodation. Some rooms open onto a landscaped garden courtyard.

All rooms offer privacy and each bed area has a television and earphones. We have free broadband internet access for people with laptops.

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