Queenscourt in the Community
What is Queenscourt at home?
Queenscourt at Home provides additional support in a patient’s own home, often at very short notice, for people, who are seriously ill or approaching the end of their life and who want to be cared for at home. It is a service which works with and alongside the GP, District Nurse and existing community services to enhance currently available services.

Eligibility includes a patient’s expressed desire that their preferred place of care is ‘home’, being registered on the GP practice’s Gold Standards Framework and being in receipt of the Disability Living Allowance (a signed DS1500).
When can I access this service?
The service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
