In Patient Unit
The Donna Mortimer Ballantyne In Patient Unit opened in summer 2018. It has been specially designed to promote comfort, safety, dignity and privacy. An admission to our In patient Unit for specialist palliative care is sometimes required for people being cared for at home or in hospital. A short admission will give the Hospice team an opportunity to assess symptoms and allow the team to review the effects of treatment allowing people to return back home.
