Information for Patients
Discussing your needs
We recognise and understand that a diagnosis of a life-limiting condition 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.
In line with Regulation 10 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008, we will ensure your dignity and treat you with respect at all times when you are receiving our care. We will treat you as an equal, help and support you to be independent, express your preferences and make your own decisions about your care. We will also respect your right to privacy.
Longfield Hospice helps you maintain your physical and emotional wellbeing, enabling you to be yourself, rather than being defined by your condition. You may struggle with things from time to time, and we can help you adapt, manage your life more effectively and improve your quality of life. We achieve this by providing a broad range of activities for adults to help manage your condition, from diagnosis and onwards to help achieve a better quality of life. Our team also offers services to those around you, those caring for somebody with a life-limiting condition and those who have been bereaved.
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 Wellbeing Team on 01453 733706, 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.
