Coronavirus: guidance on visiting our hospice
In our ongoing attempt to protect our patients, hardworking staff, volunteers and the wider community from Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are now limiting the number of visitors to a patient on the ward to one adult at a time (unless people are with us for end of life care and then it will be agreed with the ward sisters on an individual basis). No children aged 18 and under will be allowed to visit the hospice.
To keep the risk of spread of infection to a minimum all visitors will be temperature checked on arrival. Anyone with a high temperature signifying illness will not be able to enter the hospice.
My name is Sarah Kerry, I am the Day Hospice Sister at Ashgate Hospicecare.
There have been a lot of changes and developments to help us manage the current Covid-19 outbreak. Anybody who enters the main hospice building is being screened and temperature checked before they enter, we have restricted visitors to the hospice and any staff that can possibly work offsite are doing so. Our main priority has been infection control and making sure our patients, their families, our staff and volunteers and the wider community are safe.
Ensuring that Ashgate is Here for the Future
Hear from our Chief Executive, Barbara Anne Walker, on the plans that are underway to make sure that Ashgate is here for generations to come.
Our shops, coffee shops and Donation Centre will be closed until further notice.
This decision has been made in line with the latest Government guidelines to protect our staff, volunteers, customers and the wider community. Please continue to support the hospice by shopping online at Ashgate Furniture Co. and at our eBay and Amazon stores.
