Coronavirus: Visitor Information

Date Published: 2nd April 2020

Last updated: Thursday 2nd April

During Coronavirus our focus is on the safety and well being of our patients, staff, volunteers and supporters, whilst continuing to provide vital services to local people who have a terminal illness.

We have introduced changes to our visiting policy, to protect the most vulnerable we are caring for.

We understand that this is a difficult time for families who have loved ones staying with us, but we are bringing in these changes to protect our patients, staff and other visitors.

We are asking 1 key identified visitor (the same person, on every visit) to visit loved ones. Unfortunately at this time, we can't have children visiting or accessing our grounds. We are also asking for you to keep your visit to less than 1 hour per day. 

Please call in advance to arrange your visit by calling our team on 01642 811061. 

When coming to Teesside Hospice, please don't gather at the entrance, or in the car park, and maintain social distancing (at least 2 meters apart) at all times. Please use the entrance near the nurses station to enter the Inpatient Unit. 

If you are unwell, or have symptoms of high temperate, cough or breathing difficulties please don't visit our hospice. 

All visitors are kindly reminded to use the hand washing facilities before entering the Inpatient Unit.

We will of course, constantly review these changes and keep you updated. Please keep checking this page for the latest information. 

Thank you for your understanding.
