Following the Government’s announcement on Monday 12th July that most legal restrictions to control COVID-19 will be lifted from Monday 19th July, we would like to share the following update.
Whilst cases remain high and continue to rise it is essential that the hospice team continue to act carefully and remain cautious so with this in mind the Hospice will keep in place a number of key safety measures from 19 July 2021
Patient visiting arrangements have been amended.
Visiting will continue to be between 11.00am and 6.00pm each day; unless agreed to the contrary with In-Patient Unit staff.
The five named visitors rule will be discontinued along with the two hour limit.
We do, however, request that there are only two visitors per patient at any one time.
Visitors are still required to wear masks and will continue to have their temperature checked at Reception.
Bradbury Wellbeing Centre
The Bradbury Wellbeing Centre will re-open on Thursday 22nd July with a new programme of activities initially for a small group of patients/carers over two days (Thursday and Friday).
If you have any questions regarding our Wellbeing Services please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hospice Garden Café
The Garden Café will remain closed to the General Public but will be open for staff use and for visitors to the In-Patient Unit and Wellbeing Centre.
The wearing of masks and social distancing will remain in place.
Hospice Charity shops
Whilst the wearing of face masks will cease to be a legal requirement in shops from Monday 19th July we politely request that all our customers continue to wear a face mask to protect themselves, other customers, our staff and volunteers.
Until infection rates start to reduce we will also continue to restrict the number of customers in our shops at any one time again for the protection of our customers, staff and volunteers.
We do apologise for any inconvenience this may cause but hope you understand our cautious approach.
We will continue to review and update our policy’s for the very latest information please visit our website here.
