URGENT INFORMATION - CHANGE TO HOSPICE VISITING

It is with great sadness that with immediate effect and until further notice we are no longer permitting any visitors to the Hospice, including people visiting patients. 

The only exception is visitors to patients in their last days of life. One of the care team members will have discussed it with you if you are one of these families.

This is in line with current government policy of staying at home during this COVID-19 pandemic.

This action is aimed at protecting our patients and our staff so that they can continue to care for all of our other patients at this difficult time.

This is not a decision we have taken lightly but feel we have to take drastic measures to protect those we care for and those who provide this care.

Thank you for your understanding during this challenging time.

 

We would like to hear from you
