What services are offered at St Luke's?
Care is provided at St Luke's either in outpatient clinics or the day care unit, or within our 12 bed inpatient unit. St Luke's also provides elements of its service to patients in their own homes through our Hospice at Home and Community Palliative Care teams, enabling patients to remain in familiar surroundings rather than being admitted to hospital or to St Luke's In-Patient Unit. The service may differ slightly between Harrow and Brent reflecting differences in government funding.
How is a patient referred to St Luke's?
- Any healthcareor social work professional may refer a patient to St Luke's. We do, however, have to consider specific clinical criteria before we can accept a patient.
- Patients normally need to live within our catchment area and be 18 years or older
- Patients need to have illnesses that are no longer curable
These illnesses need to be in an advanced state with patients needing specialist helps in order to get satisfactory symptom relief, ie they either have less than a year to live, or are suffering from complicated and often multiple symptoms.
We are always open to offer advice to patients or families unsure how to access Hospice Care whether at home, hospital or in our building. Click here to download a referral form or contact the referrals officer on 020 8382 8001, email firstname.lastname@example.org
