Members of the public, patients, relatives, carers, GPs and other medical and health and social care professionals can also get expert advice over the phone 24/7.
For advice please phone SinglePoint on 01206 890 360.
Most cases can be dealt with over the phone, however in some circumstances a home visit can be offered if required.
The SinglePoint number can also be used for referrals into St Helena services or you can refer online. Please note that when a patient is added to the My Care Choices Register they are not automatically referred to St Helena, a separate referral is required to access our services.
We are currently working with Bluebird Care to provide the virtual ward service and to support more people in need across north east Essex. Depending on their needs, patients can be supported up to four times a day. Read more about this partnership.
Care is overseen by a St Helena nurse and patients have access to the range of services provided by St Helena, including occupational therapy. Those caring for the patient are also supported.
To refer a patient please call SinglePoint on 01206 890 360.
Please obtain patient consent prior to making a referral.
When you make a donation to St Helena Hospice, we are charged transactional fees by other companies, including fees for processing payments made to us, looking up addresses and validating bank account details.
We are very grateful to our donors who offer to offset some of these fees with a minor addition to their total amount. This is however completely optional and we are very grateful for your support whether or not you choose to contribute to processing fees.Close
We are able to claim an extra 25p on every £1 on your donation amount for no extra cost to you, as long as you are a UK tax payer; have paid enough income tax or capital gains tax in that tax year; and are donating your own money. If you pay less income tax and/or capital gains tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all of your donations in that tax year it is your responsibility to pay any difference.
