- Where patients are being supported by the end of life care plan open day time visiting will be allowed.

Covid positive visiting arrangements
Visiting arrangements for patients who are confirmed or suspected as being COVID positive will be as mentioned in the SOP.
We have electronic tablet devices available to allow patients to say in contact with their loved ones. We will continue to review the restrictions regularly and will relax them further as soon as we can do so safely.
How are we making sure we're Covid-19 compliant?
As a hospice we are committed to ensuring the safety of our patients, visitors, staff, volunteers and members of the public across both the hospice and our retail shops. We are fully compliant with all government advice and regulations, and we're actively monitoring guidance so we can implement changes effectively.
We have undertaken risk assessments for each of our shops, and for various activity at the hospice, including the use of volunteers. Where possible, non-frontline staff are working from home indefinitely with ongoing support from their line-managers. Staff that are required to work at the hospice are adhering to social distancing and we have introduced a one-way system around the hospice, social distancing signage, extra hand washing points and temperature checks.
