When referring a patient into the IPU a form will need to be completed and returned to St Barnabas inpatient unit. Use fax (number on the form), secure email at email@example.com, or by uploading to SystmOne and tasking ‘IPU referrals’ to notify the team of the referral. If the form is uploaded to SystmOne, please ensure a share is in place so it can be accessed by the hospice.
