Information for Health Professionals

We have recently produced a leaflet outlining all our services and we are distributing this to health professionals across our catchment area.  It summarises our services both in the community and in Strathcarron Hospice itself and provides guidance on how to refer patients.

It is a good opportunity to explode some myths: for example, did you know that our average length of stay is 19 days and 34% of our patients go home?  And not all patients have cancer - 25% of our patients have other conditions such as respiratory disease, heart failure or neurological conditions.  This website has information on all our services, but the leaflet provides a quick summary: click here to view a copy.
