Acorns has medical support comprised of a medical director who is an experienced consultant paediatrician.
Each hospice has a team of local GPs who have been working with Acorns for many years and are available for all children as necessary 24 hours a day as well as visiting or contacting the hospice every day. We seek to work in partnership with medical teams already providing care to the child and family.
Our Medical Director Mark Hunter is always happy to discuss a child’s medical care with his or her current medical carers if requested.
This support can be accessed through our hospices.
