We have temporarily suspended inpatient admissions to our bedded unit at Pembridge Hospice located at St Charles Centre for Health and Wellbeing, Exmoor Street, London W10 6DZ.
This situation has come about because of a lack of consultant medical cover for the unit. Despite significant efforts to source a Doctor, we have not been able to secure cover for this essential post.
Patients who require an inpatient hospice admission will be referred to neighbouring hospices to receive their care.
The Day Hospice and the Community Palliative Care Team are operating as normal, and we will continue to actively support people in their own homes. The advice line continues to operate 24 hours a day via the usual number: 020 8102 5000
We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused and are working with the CCG and other organisations to resolve the situation .
If you have any queries please do not hesitate to call the advice line or discuss with your Community Palliative Care Nurse.
