Palliative Care Referral Form for Community, Packages of Care and Funding (Word download) – SPA (Single Point of Access)
9th June 2020

This link downloads the single form replaces the previous 4 separate forms. It is to be used for all referrals to community nurses, community Macmillan Nurses, to St Barnabas Hospice and Marie Curie Rapid Response. It also temporarily replaces the forms for packages of care and for health funding. Completed forms should be emailed to SystmOne and EMIS users have been sent a version that fills in automatically some information. The PCCC (Palliative Care Coordination Centre) remains the single point of access for all referrals, they can be contacted on 0300 020 0694. The form should not stop clinician to clinician discussions. There is a 24hr palliative care advice line: 0300 303 1754

Produced by Royal College of General Practitioners and the Association for Palliative Medicine. Many national organisations have also been consulted. This paper may change so there is also a link to the latest updates in the document and elsewhere on this website. 18 pages
