Saint Francis Hospice
We have 3 consultants, one of which is our Medical Director; they provide consultant medical care to in-patients, day hospice patients, hospitals, care homes, patients at home and patients out in the community. The team also includes a specialist registrar, a doctor from a local GP training scheme and other doctors who have specialist skills in palliative medicine. The medical team works closely with GPs and hospital doctors involved in the patient’s care.
Our hospice plays an important role in teaching all aspects of palliative care to GPs, community nurses and other medical staff working in hospitals and care homes. The Education Centre at Saint Francis has become a centre of excellence in this field and gives us a superb facility to use for this work.
Our healthcare professionals include physiotherapists, occupational therapists, complimentary therapists and psychological therapists, all of whom offer a range of treatments to in-patients, those attending our day care unit and those who receive care in their homes.
Please contact us if you have any questions.
