Knysna Hospice : How to get Referred

How to get Referred

Access to Hospice services as per the criteria in our mission statement can be done as follows:

  • Referral by a private medical practitioner
  • Referral by a clinic or provincial hospital
  • Family or self referral with a complete medical history
  • Palliative care patients will be contacted within 24 hours of referral. Chronic care patients will be contacted within a week of referral. In instances where the patient does not meet our referral criteria, we will suggest and facilitate alternative service providers.
