Patients on the In-Patient Ward and at Cottage Hospice may have up to three visitors. 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.
Reception in the Pembury Building is closed – visitors to the ward are being welcomed via the side entrance. Christmas Cards can still be bought in our shops, but we are limiting footfall at the Hospice, to keep patients and their loved ones safe.
Members of the workforce work from home wherever possible to help ensure social distancing is possible in our buildings, however our buildings continue to be COVID secure so tasks that cannot be completed at home can still be completed.
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. Staff and volunteers in our charity shops continue to wear face coverings, and we kindly ask customers to continue wearing face coverings too.
