To protect our patients and staff we ask that no one visits our Winsley site for any reason if they have:
· High temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
· New, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
· Loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
There is no routine visiting of patients.
In exceptional circumstances (where a patient is actively dying) a maximum of 2 people can stay overnight in the room or the same 2 people can visit for 1 hour a day. We will advise these visitors on the relevant PPE as needed.
If you need advice or support just call our 24/7 Advice Line on 0345 0130 555
