How to refer

Referrals to Hospice services (excluding Lymphoedema) can be made on the district-wide referral form. Alternatively telephone referrals can be accepted by calling 01977 708868

If you think it would be helpful for a patient or carer to visit the Hospice prior to referral, we would be happy to show them around our facilities, please call us on  01977 708868 to arrange a suitable time.

Lymphoedema referrals​

Referrals to our Lymphoedema service should be made through our Lymphoedema referal form

Admissions

Incare referrals are considered each weekday morning. Urgent referrals will be considered on an individual basis based on a number of factors including patient needs and availability of beds.
