Due to the Coronavirus outbreak we have temporarily moved all of our Inpatient services to Coventry Myton Hospice and have implemented alternative ways to deliver a number of outpatient services to ensure the best possible support for our local community and NHS colleagues.
Our Inpatient Unit at Warwick Myton Hospice will be handed over to SWFT as they prepare for a surge in patient numbers. Our Warwick Myton at Home team will continue to be based at the hospice, and will be on hand to support NHS colleagues. The remainder of staff from Warwick will be transferred to Coventry Myton Hospice to maximise the number of Inpatient beds in operation there. There will be 20 beds available for people across the whole of Coventry and Warwickshire and admissions will be extended to 7 days a week, 8am - 8pm.
We are also enhancing our Myton at Home service in Rugby and South Warwickshire to support rapid discharge of all patients identified as being in the last days or weeks of life whose preferred place of death is at home. This service will now include a registered nurse which is not normally part of the provision and will operate 8am - 8pm, seven days a week.
We have enhanced our telephone support services to provide a 24 hour clinical advice line manned by specialist palliative care nurses and doctors for patients, their families and GPs across the whole of Coventry and Warwickshire, and an additional advice and support line specifically aimed at care home staff in the region - click here for full details.
Referrals for all Myton services will go through a single point of access and we will also accept referrals over the phone to ease and speed up the process. You can call us on 01926 838889.
You can read the full update about our plans to further support the response to Covid-19 HERE.
From 1st October 2019 the way referrals are received and managed by Myton has changed.
All referrals for inpatient care will continue to be discussed at a daily referrals meeting by the senior allocation doctor and clinical nurse specialist.
For the Living Well Programme and Fatigue and Breathlessness Management Programme (FAB), contact will be made by the lead nurse for the referred service.
For all Lymphoedema online referrals the patient will be contacted directly and offered an appointment.
We also provide Drop-in Sessions for patients and carers which don’t require an appointment or referral – find out more here.
If you require any assistance or advice please call us on 01926 838889.
