Our hospice is reintroducing visiting for patients who are admitted for symptom management and/or deteriorating in health. Visitors will be screened and given appropriate PPE to wear. One visitor will be able to stay for up to 3 hours in total in a 24 hour period. A different visitor may visit on another day. This is subject to change and hospice staff will continue to encourage other forms of communication such as phone and facetime.
There is no change to the current visiting arrangements for patients in the last days of their life.
