Our In-Patient Unit is designed to maximise the comfort and quality of life for all of our patients. Patients may be referred for a variety of reasons, such as help with difficult symptoms – like pain, or breathlessness – for emotional and family support, for planned respite care, or for care at the very end of life.

Every room has a TV, fridge, tea / coffee making facilities, ensuite shower room, a sofa bed if family need to stay and additional access to a visitor’s family room with Sky TV available in the communal sitting room. Fresh food is prepared daily by our chef who will aim to accommodate the patient’s personal taste and requirements.
