Covid-19: updated hospice visitor information

We are now able to accommodate daily one hour visits between 2pm – 5pm. Please read the below conditions before visiting the hospice.

Visiting is currently restricted in line with Covid-19 guidance.

Visiting hours are between 2pm and 5pm.

We require one person, usually the next of kin, to take responsibility for coordinating visits for their family and friends. Please do not just come to the hospice without checking the arrangements for that person first.

If you feel at all unwell, or have any symptoms of Covid-19, please follow the recommended isolation guidance and do not visit the hospice.

Please keep the number of visitors to a minimum with no more than two people (from the same household) visiting at any one time to ensure we can maintain social distancing. If somebody already has visitors, you will need to wait until they finish, or swap places with someone who is visiting before you or after you.

When arriving at the hospice, please use the hand gel located in our reception area. You will be asked if you are well today, whether you have any symptoms yourself and if you have been in contact with anyone else who might have symptoms.

You will be asked every time you visit to sign a declaration to confirm your health status and to agree to abide by our requirements for infection prevention.  We are required to capture this information for Track and Trace purposes.

Please remember we may need to change our guidance in the future based on the updates we receive from the Department of Health and Social Care.

Please do not visit the hospice if you have been in contact with anyone who is self-isolating in the last 7 days.

If you are unable to visit in person, please let us know as we can arrange telephone or online video calls from the patients’ rooms.
