Visiting the hospice - Updated 19th June 2020

As we ease out of lockdown, it is as important as ever that we maintain a very high level of infection control to protect our patients and our workforce. We are continuing to see high demand for admissions to our Inpatient Unit and we are working with patients who are extremely clinically vulnerable, including some with coronavirus. Therefore we are continuing to impose restrictions on visitors to the hospice.

For patients in our Inpatient Unit, we are allowing up to two nominated individuals to visit once a day. These individuals will be notified to our nursing team upon the patient’s admission. It will be possible to change the two nominated individuals during a patient’s stay, but no more than once for each week that the patient is with us. All visitors will be required to comply strictly with the infection control measures we are applying, including the wearing of PPE at all times. We will only allow visits from the nominated individuals.

Our Wellbeing Centre and café remain closed at the present time and no other visitors will be allowed except by prior appointment.
