In Patient Unit

Advances in medical care of all diagnoses has meant that people are living longer with their life limiting conditions. This means that they also live with multiple conditions making their care increasingly complex. Our expanded inpatient unit, now has the capacity and the capability to care and meet the needs of this complexity, within a calm, home from home environment. Our highly qualified, skilled and experienced staff, with a high staff/patient ratio ensure excellence in the management of complex symptom control, respite and end of life care. The refurbishment has meant that we are future proofed to meet the needs of our community for many years to come.

St Kentigern Hospice has 12 rooms all with ensuite facilities. The services provided are free of charge and meals are provided through our onsite café and catering. Visitors are welcome to the Hospice at all times and can be arranged through the care team. COVID procedures are in place to ensure the safety of those entering the Hospice.

Inpatient visiting times

There is no limitation to when people can visit loved ones at St Kentigern.

There are times when we are heavily engaged with the individual patient needs which may impede visiting and these tend to be first thing in the morning and meal times. Meal times are normally about 8am, 12.30pm and 5pm but these are not fixed as we will provide meals as when the patient wishes them. That is part of the uniqueness of hospice care.

Overnight we do try to restrict visits after 10pm, however this strongly depends on the individual needs of the patient.
