Information for Patients
Discussing your needs
We recognise and understand that a diagnosis of a life-limiting illness brings a difficult and emotional time. Here at Longfield we listen to you, answer your worries and questions, and support you and those around you.
We aim to help you identify what is important to you and support you in making decisions about your needs and what help and support you may require. Longfield Hospice helps you to regain control of your physical and emotional wellbeing, enabling you to be yourself, rather than being defined by your illness. You may be struggling with things from time to time, and we can help you to adapt, to manage your life more effectively and to improve your quality of life. We achieve this by providing a broad range of support for adults at all stages of your illness, from diagnosis and onwards to help achieve a better quality of life whilst living with your illness. Our team also offer services to those around you, those caring for somebody with life-limiting illness and those who have been bereaved. We are currently providing a range of services via Zoom, but if you’re worried or need help using IT, get in touch with us for support.
All services provided by Longfield can be accessed for free by adults registered with a GP in Gloucestershire or living in Gloucestershire.
Getting in touch
The first step is to get in touch and we can chat through the ways Longfield may be able to help you or your loved ones. We can talk over the phone or via video call to determine how best we can help, or if there is an alternative organisation that would better suit your needs. Our team is professional and friendly and will listen carefully to your needs before making any recommendations.
For anyone wishing to access any of our services or self-refer-please call the hospice on 01453 886868 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will return your call or email as quickly as we possibly can.
Please note that for Hospice at Home services, all referrals need to be made by a healthcare professional, such as a district nurse, GP, consultant or clinical nurse specialist.
