Quick description of services
Inpatient Medical Bed
Myton has two inpatient units in Warwick and Coventry. Both have teams of nurses, doctors and other health care professionals. Admission will be considered for any patient aged 18 years or over, with specialist palliative care needs due to advanced, progressive, life limiting disease. The patient should be registered with a Coventry or Warwickshire GP to access the inpatient unit beds. The Myton Hospices do not provide long term care.
Inpatient Nurse Led Bed
- Patients must be registered with a Coventry or Rugby GP.
- Admission will be considered for people who cannot be cared for in their own home or an alternative place of care due to their palliative nursing needs.
- Patients can be admitted from the community or hospital and need to be medically stable and not requiring medical intervention.
- CHC funding must be agreed prior to admission. Patients should always meet the criteria for fast-track funding.
- Patients should be in the final days or weeks of life and have a DNACPR in place.
- During a patients stay they will be monitored on a daily basis and if a patient stabilises an alternative place of care may have to be considered.
The Inpatient Unit at Warwick Myton Hospice offers respite admissions for patients who are aged 18 and over, have a terminal illness and are registered with a GP in Coventry & Warwickshire.
Myton at Home (home care)
Many people want to have choice over where they are cared for in the last weeks and days of life. Often people wish to stay in familiar surrounds, in their own home.
Our Day Units offer a welcoming, relaxed, yet stimulating atmosphere providing patients with an opportunity to meet and talk to others who are in a similar situation to themselves and access to a structured therapeutic programme of activities.
The Living Well Programme is aimed at enabling people to identify their most significant concerns and priorities, providing a range of support to help manage the changes in their life and to enable them to focus on the things that are meaningful to them.
Fatigue and breathlessness
The FAB programme takes place in the Day Unit on each of the Myton sites and is designed to support people who have a life limiting illness which causes fatigue and breathlessness.
Our Lymphoedema Service is based at Warwick Myton Hospice and serves both Myton and community patients of Coventry, Rugby and South Warwickshire.
