Outpatients

The nurse–led outpatient clinic is a new service that was launched in September 2016 where patients are able to be seen at the Hospice on an outpatient basis by a senior clinical nurse specialist (CNS) for assessment and advice.

 

Patients can be referred by other health professionals, their GP or can self-refer to the service and are offered on-going nurse led appointments with appropriate follow up by the CNS and/or referral to other Hospice services as necessary.

This regular contact with patients, from point of diagnosis, with on-going need assessments and close liaison with other Hospice services ensures that the patient receives the appropriate level of support, relevant to their individual need through all stages of their illness.
