Medical outpatient clinic

Medical outpatient clinic

Our medical team comprises a lead consultant and two honorary consultants in palliative medicine who provide expert advice to local hospitals at Ayr and Crosshouse. We also have one Associate Specialist in Palliative Medicine and the hospice acts as a training centre for junior doctors.

The medical team offer a medical outpatient clinic through Solas. This clinic is aimed at patients with a life limiting illness who require a palliative medicine review by a senior hospice doctor, in an outpatient setting.

Referral can be for:

  • Assessment of specific symptoms
  • Advance care planning
  • Palliative medicine opinion
  • Following specialist palliative care team referral

The medical outpatient clinic is aimed at patients who are well enough to attend as an outpatient and have access to their own transport. If they are not able to attend the hospice in Ayr then a medical domiciliary visit can be arranged. We are an advisory service and therefore it is essential that the patient’s general practitioner is in agreement with the referral.
