Information for carers and family

Would you or someone you know benefit from Saint Francis Hospice Care?
At the moment we do not accept self-referrals. Referrals to Saint Francis Hospice need to come via a GP, hospital, District Nurse or another health professional involved in your care, so we ask that you speak with them directly if you feel Saint Francis Hospice would make a difference.

Every referral is assessed at our regular referrals meetings, where our team of experts assess which service(s) has been requested and is more appropriate.

We make every effort to ensure that people referred to our care receive care that is right for them. If appropriate we will liaise with your GP, District Nurse or any other health and social care professional involved in your care.


Please browse our website for more information on the range of services we offer at home, at the hospice itself, and our crisis support service. All of our services are provided free of charge. 


If you have any questions please do not hesitate to give us a call.
