Working together - Referrals

Hospice Marlborough can receive referrals through a healthcare professional, such as a General Practitioner (GP), specialist medical practitioner or community agency.

Any adult patient with an active advanced progressive life-limiting disease may be referred for Hospice services at some point in their life. Our aim is to provide appropriate advice and support for Healthcare Professionals in our community, we work in partnership with you to ensure the best care is delivered to patients and their families living with a life limiting illness and needing palliative care support.

Hospice Marlborough works with all Healthcare Professionals who support patients who may be at home, in hospital or in a care home.

To access the services offered by Hospice Marlborough, a person may be referred by their Healthcare Professional – such as a General Practitioner (GP), specialist medical practitioner, or community agency.

Perhaps because of misconceptions as to how a hospice can help, we are often not contacted early in a person’s illness. But the sooner we are contacted, the more we can help you support your patients and their whānau.

If you’re unsure which services may best suit your patient, please contact us and we would be happy to discuss more about our services with you via email on or via phone on (03) 578 9492.
