Latest update: January 2022
The safety of our staff, patients and visitors is of paramount importance to Woodlands Hospice. In response to the Government’s easing of lockdown during the Covid-19 pandemic we have reviewed and adapted our ways of working to manage the risk to all.
Please read carefully Woodlands Hospice Risk Assessment to familiarise yourself with what to expect when you visit our hospice.

Following the release of the latest Government Guidance Woodlands Hospice has updated its inpatient visiting arrangements.
Provided a 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 one person between 2.00pm - 4.00pm and 6.00pm - 7.00pm daily, this must be the same person for both visiting slots. Please note, only one person can visit a patient in any time slot, i.e. there can be no change-over of visitors during a visiting session or between afternoon and evening.
All visitors must be able to show a negative lateral flow test result for a test taken in the Community on the day of visiting; 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. This mask must be worn throughout the duration of the visit.
Please use hand gel on entering the building, on entering the ward and as appropriate thereafter.
The café is closed to visitors.
