What happens after a referral is made

When a referral is made, it will be assessed by a multi-disciplinary team, including a specialist children’s palliative nurse team and emotional support worker who will look at both your child’s current level of needs and also your child’s prognosis.

We will speak to the people already involved in caring for your child at home or in hospital. We will come and see you at home so that we can discuss your situation and how you are feeling about Hospice’s involvement. We can then make a plan tailored around your child and your wider family’s needs.
