How long will I stay at the Inpatient Unit?

This can vary, patients may be admitted for specialist symptom management, or for end of life care.

The average length of stay for patients admitted for symptom control is two weeks, however this is determined by individual need.

The Inpatient Unit does not offer long term care.

If it is not possible for you to be looked after at home and you do not need to be in our specialist unit, we may need to discuss discharge to alternative care setting such as a nursing home.

Any plans for discharge will be discussed in collaboration with you and those important to you.
