Usually a referral will be made for admission either by your community nurse, GP or if you are in hospital, by the hospital palliative care team. The referral is then reviewed by a team of nurses and doctors at Trinity. Often there are a number of people waiting to be admitted and the team will look at each referral on a daily basis when deciding who gets admitted on any one day.

We do accept referrals from patients and/or their family or friends. When we receive such referrals we will ask your permission to get information from your GP and/or hospital doctor so that we are sure Trinity is the right place for you to be cared for.
