Support for you – St Columba’s Hospice Palliative Care, Edinburgh

Accessing Hospice Services

The Access Team is your single point of contact for Hospice referrals and enquiries – we like to think of it as the front door to all our services.

Our priority is to understand what is happening for you in that moment, address any immediate issues and get you to the most appropriate support as quickly as possible.

Hospice at Home

Most people with a life-limiting illness want to stay in their own home and remain independent for as long as possible. Our Care at Home, Community Palliative Care and Virtual Ward teams are here to help you do that.



Video consultations

We support patients and their families with virtual consultations via secure video call.

We use the NHS system Attend Anywhere/Near Me which is easy to use and secure. Your video consultation will be pre-arranged by phone with one of our team who will guide you on how to use the system.

Information about the system and compatible devices can be found here.
