Inpatient Visiting

Following the release of the latest Government Guidance Woodlands Hospice has updated its inpatient visiting arrangements.

Every inpatient is now able to identify up to six people to be their nominated visitors for the duration of their stay.  Provided the patient does not have a Covid-19 positive diagnosis, (and is not suspected as having Covid-19 symptoms), they will be able to receive a visit from two of these people between 2.00 and 4.00pm including weekends. 

Visitors must be able to show a negative lateral flow test result for a test taken in the Community in the previous 72 hours; the receptionist will ask all visitors to show their negative result each time they visit.

Visitors must wear a face covering on entering the Hospice and will be given a surgical-grade mask to put on before entering the ward area.
