Weldmar Hospicecare supports professional health carers from both within Weldmar and in the wider community.
We do this by delivering education and training in palliative care and offering advice on palliative care. We also advise health and social care professionals on making patient referrals to us.
Access to our services for patients is by referral, normally from a patient’s GP or consultant. The referral form could also be completed by the District Nurse or specialist home care nurse, or Social Services, in liaison with the patient’s GP.
To help to make sure everyone who needs palliative care gets a good service, Weldmar Hospicecare is committed to supporting education and training.
