Our award winning Hospice Care at Home Team, also known as CoSI [Co-ordinated, Safe & Integrated] team, is a collaborative partnership between Woking & Sam Beare Hospices and Central Surrey Health [CSH] for people with deteriorating health and for those who wish to die at home with their family and friends.
The CoSI team are skilled registered nurses and health care assistants who offer personal centred care, advice and support at home. They work closely together complementing the care led by CSH District Nursing Service. This care can be for a few days, or a period of weeks [typically in the patient's last 6-8 weeks of life] depending upon the individuals needs. CoSI care is available for patients registered with a North West Surrey CCG GP.
Our experienced CoSI Registered Nurses and Health Care Assistants are accountable for delivering an excellent and holistic approach to patient centered care in the community, and the CoSI Co-ordinator is based at Woking & Sam Beare Hospices and provides seven day access to advice and support.
In 2016 the CoSI team received the 'Kent Surrey Sussex Academic Health Science Network [KSS AHSN] Award for End of Life Care' and the ‘End of Life Care Champions of the Year 2016’ from The National Council for Palliative Care [NCPC].
