Our community nursing team contact all families whose child has been referred to the hospice, and manage our referrals panel. During the first year with our service, our Community Nurses talk to families about what help and support they would like to access and how they can find this.
You can request support from our Community Nursing Team if your child’s condition changes following a long hospital admission, deterioration or new symptoms. The Community Nursing Team can assess the need and arrange a series of home visits to help and support where needed.
Our Community Nurses also support children and young people who are reaching end of life, working closely with the Community Children’s Nurses, GP and hospital teams, offering a 24/7 service if needed.
