The safety of our staff, patients and visitors is of paramount importance to Wirral Hospice St John’s Board of Trustees and Senior Leadership Team. 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.
All persons attending Wirral Hospice St John’s hospice and charity shops are required to adhere to these safe systems to optimise their own safety and that of other people.
It is vital that no one comes to our hospice if they are experiencing any of the symptoms associated with COVID-19 or have been in close contact with someone else experiencing those symptoms or who has tested positive within the last 14 days.vPatients may only have one visit a day of up to two people from the same household or support bubble.
Covid-19 is still prevalent in Wirral and across the United Kingdom. As a virus it cannot be seen. Transmission is directly through respiratory droplets spread short distances from coughing and sneezing or talking and from touching surfaces on which droplets have landed then touching your eyes, mouth and nose.
Please take time to carefully read Wirral Hospice's Risk Assessment to familiarise yourself with what to expect when you visit the hospice building, these systems are currently in operation.
If you have any questions about whether you can or cannot visit the hospice, please contact one of our hospice team for advice on 0151 334 2778.
We will continue to review the updated guidance received and will make the necessary changes as and when required.
We thank you for your support at this time.
