The specialist unit is where we look after our most vulnerable patients, and it is vital that we continue to take precautionary measures to protect them, their visitors and our staff during this pandemic.
Following the latest advice from the government, we have updated our policy on visiting, so please adhere to the guidance below to help keep everyone safe in these very challenging times.
Visiting hours are between 3 and 6pm daily – please ring the doorbell to gain entry.
· Visitor numbers are restricted to one visitor per patient per day.
· Please arrive with your own face covering or mask to maintain our PPE supplies for frontline staff. If you do not have access to this protection, please phone 01752 401172 ahead of your visit.
· All visitors need to be free of the symptoms of COVID-19 and not subject to 14-day isolation as result of a household member having the virus or having been advised to do so via the NHS track and trace scheme.
· On arrival, all visitors must wash their hands and wear a face covering/mask for the duration of their visit, maintaining social distancing at all times from patients, other visitors, and ward staff.
We understand that when their time is running short, being with your loved one is more important than ever, so we will continue to use our discretion to make compassionate adaptations for those patients approaching end of life.
Thank you for respecting and complying with the decisions of our care team at this time.
