How to Access Palliative Care

Referrals can be made now to the palliative care homecare service by an individual’s GP or hospital consultant. If you feel that you, or your loved one, would benefit from specialist palliative care services, ask your GP or hospital consultant whether they think a referral to the Wicklow homecare service would be appropriate. While we are waiting for the opening of the Wicklow Hospice Inpatient Unit , at Magheramore, patients can access hospice beds in Blackrock Hospice.
