How to make a referral
Referrals usually come from families or health professionals such as consultants, GPs, hospital and community nurses.
We are here to help children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions from birth until they are 19 years old. We support families from all faiths, cultures and ethnic groups.
We cover the whole of Berkshire and into many of the surrounding counties and our support is provided free of charge and available all year round.
If your child has been diagnosed with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition, they may be eligible for our services.
Can my child access the service?
If you are unsure if your child meets our eligibility criteria, please give us a call on 01628 822777 and we can provide you with further information and advice.
The referral process
To make a referral please complete the referral form and send it back to us.
There are a number of ways to do this:
Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service, Snowball Hill, Woodlands Park Avenue, Berkshire, SL6 3LU
The referral is assessed at our referral meeting to ensure the child meets our criteria and that we are able to help.
Following this process a member of Alexander’s Care Team will meet with the family to explain more about our service and how we can help.
“I don’t think the team at Alexander Devine will ever know the extent to which they make my life so much easier. They are all truly amazing and I don’t know what I would do without them.
Frankè adores his visits to the hospice. He especially loves being in the hydrotherapy pool. Swimming is definitely his most favourite thing! Spending time in the hospice’s sensory room always seems to bring out his playful side and it is lovely to see his beautiful smile“
