Coronavirus: Latest update from Primrose Hospice

At Primrose Hospice and Family Support Centre, the health, safety and wellbeing of our patients, clients , staff and volunteers is our primary focus.

We would like to stress that the Hospice remains open and all our care and family support services are still being provided to everyone who needs them, however, we have had to change how we provide support to our community.

We also continue to follow the Government guidelines and have implemented stringent systems to ensure that Infection Control advice is fully adhered to.

All staff and volunteers are undertaking regular testing to protect everyone and most of our staff are now double vaccinated.

For anyone attending the Hospice we are asking you, if possible, to undertake a lateral flow test before you arrive. Kits can be obtained free from pharmacies and testing centres or by application on line. If you are unable to obtain test kits the Hospice does keep a small stock of tests. Ideally we would ask you to test as close as possible to when you will be attending and no longer than 3 days before.

We are insisting on good hand hygiene and not allowing access to our premises for anybody who has symptoms that may be Covid 19 or has potentially been exposed to Coronavirus.

It is essential that you always follow this guidance to reduce spread and particularly when you are on our premises.

We would like to thank you for your continued support and consideration to help us maintain services and keep our community safe.
