The aim of the In-patient Unit
St Leonard’s In-patient Unit provides patients with a peaceful environment to receive personalised nursing care, tailored to your needs.
Patients are admitted to the Hospice for symptom control, respite or end of life care. Within this relaxed environment the team ensure patients and their family feel safe.
The In-patient Unit has twelve single rooms with en-suite facilities and two four bedded bays with bathrooms.
Large windows and french doors in each
room allow patients to enjoy the outside environment. The rooms either have balconies with views of the countryside or patios overlooking the garden courtyard. All exterior areas are accessible for both independently mobile patients and those who require assistance of a wheelchair or are restricted to their beds.
Visiting the In-patient Unit
St Leonard’s Hospice is open for visitors between the hours of 10am and 8pm every day. Special arrangements can be made for visiting outside of our ‘normal’ hours.
We do not restrict the number of visitors unless we are specifically asked by a patient or a family member. We have a quiet sitting room, family room and children’s play room.
