Getting referred

Having a child with complex medical needs can sometimes feel overwhelming, so we like to keep our referral process as simple as possible.

We accept new referrals up to your child’s 19th birthday, as long as they live in our catchment area; South Yorkshire, North Nottinghamshire, North Derbyshire and North Lincolnshire. Referrals can come from a number of sources, including friends, family, or healthcare professionals.

To refer your child, you’ll need to fill out our referral and consent form so we can access all the medical records we need to make our decision.

Once you have filled in the referral and consent forms, please post them to:

Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice,
Cramfit Road,
North Anston,
Sheffield,
S25 4AJ

or email a copy to our Catherine Jackson or Diane Hollingworth, our Care Team Managers, at catherine.jackson@bluebellwood.org or diane.hollingworth@bluebellwood.org.

Once you have filled out a consent and referral form, we’ll be able to access your child’s medical records and we can begin to put together a care plan for your child. Our panel meets every four weeks to discuss new referrals.


If you have any questions about the referral process, please contact one of our Care Team Managers, Diane Hollingworth and Catherine Jackson, on 01909 517 369.
