Advice on whether a family member needs to be referred can be obtained from the patient’s GP. Weston Hospicecare is appropriate for patients who meet the following criteria:

1. They have a life-limiting disease with complex associated problems that may be physical, psychological, social,
emotional or spiritual in their origins.

2. Due to the level of complexity and/or intensity of their illness, their needs cannot solely be met by other services/care providers at this time.

3. They live within and/or are registered with a GP within our coverage area.

4. Both the GP and patient/advocate agree to the referral.

Referrals are welcomed from consultants, GPs, clinical nurse specialists, district nurses and community matrons. If the GP is not the referrer, please be sure to advise the patient’s GP of your referral.

Depending on the reason for referral, an appropriate member of our team will contact the patient and arrange an initial appointment which can take place on-site at Jackson-Barstow House or home.

If the referral is urgent, a member of the team will make telephone contact within two working days. We are only able to take admissions for our inpatient unit from Monday-Friday until 3pm.

For immediate advice and guidance, healthcare professionals may phone us on 01934 423900. The referral guidelines above will help you decide if hospice services are appropriate for your patient and, if so, which services would be most useful.

If you have a patient who you think would benefit from our services, please do refer them to us. Simply click here to contact us for a referral form and send it back to us at:

    Reclaim Gift Aid

    Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Weston Hospicecare to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Weston Hospicecare we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

    By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Weston Hospicecare to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Weston Hospicecare will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

    What is Gift Aid?

    Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Weston Hospicecare receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

    All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

    The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
