If you are in Lymington New Forest hospital and are already known to Oakhaven one of our consultants or nurse specialists can see you there and liase with the hospital staff about your treatment, care and any discharge plans. This may include transfer over to Oakhaven if you would like and it is appropriate.
The hospital staff may refer you to us if you have not previously had our support, if they think it would be helpful for you. We may advise the team about controlling your symptoms, provide emotional support and help with any discharge plans to home, care home or transfer to Oakhaven where appropriate.
We provide regular education sessions for the hospital staff and work closely with them on palliative care issues.
