For healthcare professionals

Making a referral to our services

Any adult patient in Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin and North Powys who has an incurable illness and requires palliative care or end of life care can be referred to Severn Hospice for support.

GPs, hospital consultants and any other healthcare professional can make a referral to any of our services listed below by completing the referral form at the bottom of this page All referrals will be assessed and prioritised by clinical need and the ability of the hospice to meet those needs.

The reason for referral must be clearly stated on the form which can be faxed to the hospice using the fax number on the form. Any supporting information such as hospital letters, GP summary, a list of current medication etc should be sent with the form.

Severn Hospice is not an emergency service but we can accept out of hours emergency admissions if the patient’s needs dictate and we have the capacity to admit the patient. In the case of an out of hours or emergency admission please fax the completed referral form and follow this up with a phone call.
