As a health care provider, we still have a duty of care for the health, safety and wellbeing of our staff, volunteers and people who use our services. We continue to follow NHS England and Hospice UK guidelines on Covid prevention measures. This ensures everyone here at the hospice and across the charity is protected as much as possible.
We will continue to have Covid-secure measures in place which will be decided by regular reviews of our ongoing risk assessments in line with best practice. Each service and department has its own Covid-secure risk assessment. We will continue to assess risks and put measures in place to maintain as safe an environment as possible.
We are returning to pre-pandemic operation and we are accepting referrals:
- Our Wellbeing Services are seeing patients for face-to-face consultations. Many of our group sessions such as our Support and Information Café are restarting. We will also retain some of our services online
- Our Counselling Services are delivering many sessions face-to-face. We can still offer counselling via the telephone or over Zoom if required
- Our Hospice at Home nurses continue to provide vital end-of-life care for patients in their own homes. And our Roaming Nurse Service is going from strength to strength
Visiting our building
If you wish to drop off a monetary donation here at the main hospice building, to support us during this challenging time, we still ask for visitors to wear a face mask if at all possible.
