Access to Care Form
We seek to ensure that all those in need of Burrswood’s care are enabled to receive it, regardless of ability to pay. As a charity, we subsidise the true bed cost, and additionally operate a fund to which individuals who suffer genuine financial hardship may apply for assistance. We welcome adults regardless of age, religion or ethnicity and offer financial support with the cost of care as wisely and fairly as we can.

Fast Track Admissions
For same-day admissions, the referring doctor needs to call 01892 863637 before 2pm and ask to speak to the Duty Physician. Every effort will be made to provide a bed in our hospital that day, when the need for urgent admission is absolute and there is a bed available.
