We have removed restrictions on the number of visitors that patients may have on the In-Patient Ward and at Cottage Hospice. Patients are tested on admission and regularly during their stay, with testing available to visitors as well. Visitors are asked to wear a Surgical Mask when in our clinical areas.
Hospice Outreach Service is operating as normal, supporting patients via telephone calls and visits. The Counselling & Support Service is offering counselling via video calls and has resumed in-person appointments.
Members of the workforce are working from home where possible to help ensure social distancing is possible in our buildings, however our buildings continue to be COVID secure so that staff that cannot work from home can still complete the essential work that they do.
We have a robust plan in place to help and support patients or family members exhibiting symptoms of COVID and are providing our workforce with protective equipment as required. Regular asymptomatic testing is available for the whole workforce and testing is available for staff, volunteers, patients and those important to them if needed.
All of our Charity Shops are open, have returned to their normal opening hours and we have started to allow more people into our shops at one time. Staff and volunteers in our charity shops continue to wear face coverings, and we kindly ask customers to continue wearing face coverings too.
