About the service

Duffy Suite is a 28 bedded intermediate care unit located at St Helens Hospital. The unit is able to facilitate admissions for 26 intermediate care patients and 2 surgical overnight beds, for day care patients from Sanderson Suite who may need overnight stay due to clinical or social reasons. This unit provides rehabilitation for patients, who are medically fit to leave acute care, but may require more therapy or clinical input to help them return to their usual place of residence or non-hospital residence.

Patients are admitted to Duffy Suite from:

  • Inpatient wards at Whiston Hospital
  • Emergency Department at Whiston Hospital
  • Sanderson Surgical Day Case Unit
  • Other NHS Trusts
  • Community

The unit offers a dedicated rehabilitation service for Merseyside residents. Offering regular goal setting meetings within the teams to discuss your progress and establish goals. We welcome the input of family and friends while planning and delivering care.

Patient with who live within the St Helens CCG or who are registered with a St Helens GP can be referred from the community for a bed in intermediate care via Contact Cares.
