What if my patient only wants to go to St Raphael’s Hospice? Although our IPU is temporarily closed we will be reopening again on 31st August. In the meantime, our neighbour hospices (St Christopher’s Hospice, Sydenham and Royal Trinity Hospice, Clapham) have agreed to admit patients in our area, depending on bed availability. We are happy to discuss and explore this for you. Princess Alice Hospice is unavailable for most of this time due to their own refurbishment.
