In response to the current outbreak of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) we are taking additional precautions to keep patients, families and our workforce safe. Patients with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 can be admitted to our In-Patient Ward, whilst patients without suspected or confirmed COVID-19 can choose to come to Cottage Hospice or the In-Patient Ward.
We will test each patient for COVID-19 before admitting them to the Cottage Hospice. This means we can keep patients as safe as possible, and allow them more than one designated visitor.
Cottage Hospice is Hospice in the Weald's fifth service and operates differently to traditional Hospice care models. It is the first of it's kind in the UK and patients are cared for by a family caregiver, supported by the team.
