How to make a referral

For patients, families and friends

If you feel Harlington Hospice night care services might benefit you, or someone close to you, you can seek a referral in the following ways:

  • Talk to your GP, district nurse, or your hospital team of consultants and nurses, or any other clinician who is helping you.
  • If you are already a Harlington Hospice patient, talk to one of our care team if you are interested in one of our other services.

 

For health and social care professionals

All health and social care professionals can make a referral via our NHS email:

[email protected]

Urgent referrals may be made over the phone to our Care Co-ordinator or Referral Co-ordinator:

  •    Monday-Friday 08.00 -16.00  020 8759 0453
  •    After 16.00 and weekends 07793 656804

When the patient is already an inpatient elsewhere we will liaise with the hospital palliative care team.

Referrals can be sent by NHS email or post, together with any appropriate clinical documentation: e.g. recent medical letters, discharge summaries, investigations or details of current medications are helpful.

For community referrals, we also request that they are supported by a district nurse referral as we need to work with them to effectively meet the needs of community-based patients.
