Inpatient Unit

The Inpatient Unit in Ipswich provides specialist palliative care for the relief of pain and other distressing symptoms, at all times aiming to maintain dignity and choice.

There are several reasons why patients are admitted to the short stay Inpatient Unit, including end of life care. In many cases patients return home, having visited the Hospice for respite care. There are 18 beds on the Inpatient Unit made up of wards and single rooms. 

As well as expert medical and nursing care, a variety of activities and therapies are offered which are flexible and sensitive to individual needs such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy and complementary therapy. For more information on these services, please click here.

Family support services are also available. Inpatients and their family, friends and carers can access family support services such as art therapy, music therapy and spiritual care. For more information about family support services, please click here.

We accept patients from East Suffolk, South Norfolk and further afield where this is the patient's choice.

Referrals for this service are dealt with through our daily referrals meeting and referrals can be faxed to 01473 712652 or submitted online.
