In-patient Unit

Our hospice aims to provide every patient with a terminal illness and their families with the best care possible.

IPU

Patients come to our in-patient unit to get their symptoms under control. Others come to the hospice at the very end of their life when care elsewhere can’t meet their needs.

Care is delivered 24 hours a day. Our team of nurses, doctors, and therapists will provide you with specialist treatment and care. We will also prove support and help for your family and those who matter most to you.

Following a major refurbishment in 2018, the hospice now operates 10 in-patient beds which are split into four side rooms and four 3-bedded bays. Our gardens were landscaped and are now wheelchair accessible so that both patients and their families and friends can enjoy the serene surroundings.

In addition to our team of nurses and doctors, we have a Physiotherapist to help with mobility and pain, an Occupational Therapist to improve your ability to do everyday activities, a Complementary Therapy and Creative Arts team who will help you to relax, and a Psychotherapist and a Chaplaincy team who will listen to your concerns.

Generally, you can expect to stay between 1-2 weeks and we will work with you and your family to plan for safe care at home before your discharge. We will liaise with our colleagues in the community to ensure that you have all the support you need when the time is right for you to move on from us.

Sometimes people need longer-term 24-hour care and we will work with you to see how this can be arranged at home or may help you to transfer to a local care home.

If you are visiting the In-patient unit for the first time, more information can be found here.

All clinical services at the Hospice are provided thanks to an innovative partnership between Michael Sobell Hospice and Harlington Hospice.

What our patients and their families say:

Michael Sobell Hospice is so homely, and the staff and volunteers are all so kind.
