1st November 2022

St Barnabas Hospice is pleased to announce that the planned works to refurbish the Inpatient Unit has reached its conclusion.

Miller Knight and colleagues have worked well to keep the project on track.

The IPU Team are now working together to ensure we have a smooth transition to final completion. The unit is looking bright and modern but continues to offer a warm, welcoming, homely feel that will enhance the experience of patients, visitors, and staff.Large top to bottom window in a room with blue curtains and cosy brown chair

Plans are in place to ensure we can reopen to patient admissions in the safest way possible. Staff will be returning from their placements over the next two weeks and equipment, medicines and supplies reinstated.

As such, we envisage that the work will be fully complete for us to accept referrals from the afternoon of Friday 11th November, with admissions accepted from Monday 14th November.

Our trusted referral process remains unchanged; as such, they can be submitted via SystmOne (and tasking ‘IPU referrals’ to notify the team) or by completion of the referral proforma which should be emailed to [email protected]

For urgent referrals, please call the team on 01522 511566.

The team are looking forward to welcoming our patients and families.
