HOSPICE VISITING AND WEARING A FACE COVERING
Please note that all visitors to healthcare facilities which includes the Hospice are now required by law to wear a face covering. You will not be permitted to enter the Hospice without one. This doesn’t have to be a mask, a cloth face covering is sufficient. Please also remember to wash your hands regularly and use hand sanitisers often to help prevent the spread of infection.
Each patient can have two visitors for two hours per day. This is to ensure that everyone does not visit at once and that we are able to maintain social distancing and keep our patients and staff safe. Visitors will be allocated a time slot by the ward team.
Visitors must not have any symptoms or be living in a household with anyone who has symptoms of Covid -19 and the same people must visit on each occasion. If you have any questions about our visiting policy please speak to the nurse looking after your loved one or see the Hospice Visiting leaflet below.
Our community services are fully operational and we are continuing to provide care and treatment for patients and carers. Please continue to contact us in the usual way. We are also supporting individuals, families and groups to stay in touch through telephone and video contact across all our services, including those on-site services and groups that are currently suspended. For those on our inpatient wards, we have tablet devices through which patients can keep in regular contact with their loved ones despite the restrictions on visitors. Staff are on hand to help patients with this if they are unsure how to make use of the technology.
