Helpful Information

There are times when you may need support to manage the needs of the patient.  The Hospice aims to provide that service for you.

Our In-Patient Unit is for those with problems which cannot be managed in other settings and who would benefit from the support of the specialist palliative care team.

The Day Hospice at Halton Haven provides an opportunity for specialist assessment and review of patients’ needs.  This enables the provision of physical, psychological, social and spiritual interventions within the context of clinical settings.

Our services are delivered by a specialist multi-disciplinary team, which possesses a wide range of expertise.  The team includes:

  • Consultants in Palliative Medicine, (Supportive Care UK SCUK )
  • Doctors and Nurses with palliative care experience,
  • Advanced Nurse Practitioner ANP
  • Palliative Care Clinical Nurses,
  • Physiotherapist,
  • Pharmacist,
  • Chaplaincy Support,
  • Psychological Support,
  • Family Support Unit
  • Bereavement Support,
  • Complementary Therapy,
  • Access to Occupational Therapists, Dietitians and Social Workers.

We have close links and collaborate with hospital and primary health care colleagues and other community health and social care services.

It must be noted at the outset that Halton Haven Hospice is unable to provide services for Patients whose:

  • Conditions are stable and their needs are mainly social in nature
  • Current clinical problems are not related to their life-limiting illness
  • Immediate care needs would be best met in the acute setting – e.g. neutropenic sepsis

Patients who are referred and admitted for respite care will not be seen by a Medical Officer/ANP during their stay; they will however receive full nursing care.
