Visiting hours to our In-Patient Unit at Woking Hospice
We are relaxing the visiting restrictions that were put in place in March 2020 in accordance with guidance received from the government and Public Health England.
Visiting hours are now currently from 11am to 6pm (unless agreed to the contrary with ward staff) and visits should be limited to two hours per patient per day within these hours.
To protect our patients, staff and volunteers, however, we ask all visitors to continue to adhere to the following restrictions:
- If you have experienced any COVID-19 symptoms or have been in contact with someone who has, you must not visit the Hospice
- Five named visitors (a maximum of two at any one time) are allowed per patient room and visits may be restricted during busy times.
- Visiting must be limited to the next of kin and immediate family only.
- All visitors are to wash their hands and use hand gel prior to visiting the In-patient Unit.
- Personal Protective Equipment will be provided and must be worn at all times during your visit.
- It will be at the discretion of the Nurse in Charge to allow visiting outside the specified visiting time.
Thank you for your cooperation.
