We are pleased to announce that we have reviewed visiting to the Hospice, with the aim of supporting, while maintaining the safety of patients, visitors, staff and volunteers.

From Monday 13 June, there will be no limit on the number of visitors patients can welcome. Due to space, and for everyone's safety and comfort, we may ask you to stagger visits throughout the day to avoid any more than 4 people at any one time (children under 12 are not counted in the total number of visitors).

Nursing staff will help you make additional arrangements if you are visiting someone in the final days of life. 



Inpatient visiting

When visiting your loved one on the ward, please:

  • Carry out a Lateral Flow Test before every visit (this is recommended and is not a requirement)
  • Use the hand sanitiser provided at the main door before entering the Hospice building and regulary throughout your visit
  • Wear a  surgical mask within the clinical areas

All visitors

We would ask that all visitors to site continue to socially distance where possible and maintain good hand hygiene. Please do not attend our site if you feel unwell. This includes any of the following:

  • Symptoms of COVID-19 - cough, temperature, loss of taste or smell
  • Any cold, flu or respiratory symptoms
  • Sickness or diarrhoea
  • Any other potentially infectious condition

Please note: There is no longer a requirement to wear a face mask when visiting the Hospice in general; however, you are requested to wear a surgical mask when entering the wards. Please continue to support our staff and respect individual decisions to wear/ not wear a face mask. If a staff member asks you to wear a face mask then we ask you to please co-operate, unless you are exempt from wearing one. Masks are available throughout the Hospice should you require one at any time.
