In-Patient Unit - Trinity Hospice

In-Patient Unit

Our adult In-Patient Unit offers 24 hour specialist care in our purpose-built hospice, with space for up to 20 patients.

Our experienced medical and nursing staff help organise each patient’s individual care from the moment they arrive in a professional, yet relaxed way. Patients are always involved in any decisions about the treatment and the care that is given.

general views and rooms 003Though some patients come into Trinity during their final days, many others are able to return home with our support, having had their symptoms stabilised.

Our In-Patient Unit is very modern and comfortable – many people say it is more like a ‘five star’ hotel – and we aim to make patients and their families as relaxed as possible, supporting them every step of the way.

Many of our rooms are single ensuite, and all are decorated and furnished to a high standard. Each patient has personal storage space, a television, DVD player and of course, privacy when they want it. Patients are welcome to use laptops or our own computer and Internet facilities. We have overnight rooms for families who want to stay close by.

All our bedrooms look out into the beautiful Trinity gardens, with easy access for when patients want to use them. Beds can be wheeled outside and our gardens are a wonderful place to relax when the weather is good.

People often comment on the great food at Trinity! Our catering staff are happy to create meals to specific tastes alongside the daily menus which have lots of variety too. We also have comfy lounges where patients and families can meet to chat and relax or watch television.

Trinity has its own hairdressing salon too, manned by volunteers, and in our main reception area there is a well stocked card and gift shop, which is popular with patients and visitors.
