Our Hospice Outreach Project brings information about St Barnabas services right into the community. In the past year, over 1,300 people have received face to face support from our Hospice Outreach Team, to help them cope with physical or emotional issues affecting their daily life.
This project, initially funded by the Department of Health, aims to help ease the questions and worries those affected by life-limiting illnesses may have. The Hospice Outreach Project (HOP) is a mobile vehicle unit which provides a flexible and accessible range of services right into the heart of the community.
It is staffed by a senior nurse, who will be able to provide information and advice on all aspects of hospice care available at St Barnabas House and out in the local community. The Hospice Outreach Project also acts as an education resource for healthcare professionals and the wider community. The specialist staff work closely with community teams and local support networks to offer advice in areas of symptom management, emotional, spiritual, psychological and bereavement support for patients, their families and significant others.
The aim of this project is to improve the way people access information and support related to ill health, end of life issues, life limiting illnesses and wellbeing. The hospice outreach vehicle visits various locations in the Adur, Arun, Henfield and Worthing areas, including Worthing and Southlands Hospitals, throughout the year.
All visits are subject to weather conditions. From September, visits are between 10am and 2pm unless stated otherwise. For more information about the St Barnabas House Hospice Outreach Project please contact 01903 706357 or email HospiceOutreachProject@stbh.org.uk.
