Nightingale House Hospice provides specialist palliative care services, completely free of charge, to people across Wrexham, Flintshire, East Denbighshire, the A494 corridor to Barmouth, and the borders, including Oswestry, Ellesmere, Wem and Whitchurch.
To receive care and support from any of our services a medical referral is required, this can be from a general practitioner or from the consultant in charge of your care at the hospital who can either send a letter or complete a hospice referral form. The referral should indicate which of the hospice services or which department or service within the hospice is being asked to assess the needs of the patient and their family.
Once the referral is received a member of the hospice team will contact the patient, this may be by letter if an out-patient appointment has been requested, or by telephone if the referral is directly to a clinical service such as physiotherapy or day unit. The hospice will maintain contact with both the referring doctor and general practitioner to keep them informed of the outcome of the request for services.
