Referring your patient

How do referrals to Willen Hospice work?

If you have a patient under your care, you can refer them to Willen Hospice for specialist complex symptom control, including pain relief and management of distressing symptoms that are a result of their illness or treatment. They can be cared for either in our In-Patient Unit or by our Willen at Home team, if the patient prefers to receive care in their own surroundings.

Referrals can only be made by GPs, Hospital Consultants, District Nurses and Social Services from Milton Keynes and surrounding areas.

We care for patients over 18, with life limiting illnesses, by providing compassionate care centred around their needs. Read our Referral & Admissions Policy for guidance on accessing all of our services.
