Who can refer a patient to Victoria Hospice?

Victoria Hospice works in partnership with Home & Community Care Nurses. These nurses are responsible for initial registration of our patients and ongoing coordination of care at home. Patients may register with us before actually requiring services. If a patient does not have a Home Care Nurse, the family physician can request a Home & Community Care Nurse home visit. People living in Greater Victoria may also contact the Vancouver Island Health Authority General Enquiries toll-free telephone line: 1 888 533-CARE (2273) or the Victoria Hospice Community Office 250-370-8715 (Hours 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Pacific Standard Time, Monday – Friday). More information on registering with Victoria Hospice.
