For patients and families How we help How we work with others Our team work closely with other professionals who have an input into your care, such as local GPs, consultants, and district nurses. We can keep them up to date with things like changes you agree to regarding your care or medication regime. We can also let them know about referrals, appointments and other communications so that you can focus on yourself. If you're going for an outpatient appointment with your hospital consultant, our Katharine House clinical nurse specialist can ring them to let them know your concerns so that nothing gets missed when you see the consultant. The doctors and nurses at the hospice also communicate regularly with your GP if you have been to an outpatient appointment or have been an inpatient at the hospice. Our team keep in touch with hospices and national palliative care organisations across the country to ensure that the very best practice is being delivered.
