The services provided at St Columba’s Hospice
We provide round-the-clock support and care for patients and families, creating a space in the health care system, where a dedicated team of doctors, nurses and allied health professionals can create the ethos and environment where such specialist care can be delivered.
The Hospice has a 30 bed inpatient unit and we also see patients as outpatients, in our day services, and in the community too. Patients have a range of illnesses including motor neurone disease, heart and respiratory conditions, cancer and many more.
Patients may use some or all of our services, depending on their needs.
Our 30 bed inpatient unit is for patients who need to stay at the Hospice for their care. Find out more about our Inpatient Unit.
Our Community Team is made up of our day services, community specialist nurses and outpatient services. Day services are open during the week for nurse-led specialist care for patients who are able to travel from their home to the Hospice.
The community specialist nurses visit patients across Edinburgh and the Lothians in their own homes to ensure they have the specialist care they need.
The outpatient services are for people to have specialist care appointments with our doctors and supportive care team. Find out more about all these services.
Our multi-disciplinary team is a mix of professionals who cover counselling, physiotherapy, chaplaincy, occupational therapy, social work and complementary therapy. Find out more about the team.
