Hospice Services

Dr Kershaw’s Hospice provides a range of services tailored to those within the community living with life-limiting illness, along with their families. Find out about these services and how to be referred to the Hospice for treatment or care.

Patient Services

At Dr Kershaw’s it is our belief that end-of-life care deserves as much beauty, attention and respect as care at the beginning of life. Our dedicated team support patients in the local community when they need it the most.

Families, Friends & Carers

It can be very scary having a loved one come into the Hospice. Many people think it is just "where you go to die" but many patients spend time with us at other stages of their illness.

Health & Social Care Professionals

Dr Kershaw’s Hospice works closely with other health care professionals, with referrals for Hospice admission accepted from a variety of sources including GPs, hospital consultants, community nurses, Macmillan nurses, hospital and community AHP's.

24 Hour Advice Line

The advice line is available seven days a week, 365 days a year and is manned by trained and experienced nursing staff.
