|Keeping you safe when visiting ASPH|
As we move into the next stage of the COVID-19 pandemic we are restoring and recovering our services and safety for you and our team remains our absolute priority.
With this in mind we have made significant changes at our sites in line with government regulations. However we also need your support with these measures too. So please watch our short animation and read our information sheet. Thank you for your support and patience in following the guidance and helping to keep everyone safe.
|Changes to the visiting arrangements for patients at the end-of-life|
We have made some changes to the visiting arrangements for patients at the end-of-life. We are now able to accommodate one nominated visitor for up to one hour each day or two nominated visitors on alternate days during a patients stay. The patient must still be referred and reviewed by the Specialist Palliative Care Team prior to visiting, and visits must be pre-arranged each day with the ward nursing team.
Other visiting restrictions still remain in place and this is due to the risk CoVid continues to present within the community and our hospital and the associated threats of outbreaks with this.
If you have a family member who is a patient with special circumstances – such as learning difficulties, emotional and behavioural difficulties, dementia or severe confusion, who would really benefit from a visitor then please speak to the ward nursing team and they will advise further.
Many thanks for your continued support.
