Following the rise in cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the UK, please read our guidance before visiting The Norfolk Hospice.  Our patients and clients are particularly vulnerable, and your understanding is appreciated.The senior management team have been regularly reviewing the latest government advice around the Coronavirus (COVID-19) infection.

We want to make sure that our hospice remains a safe space for service users, staff, volunteers and visitors to the hospice. Our patients - especially those on our inpatient unit - are a particularly vulnerable group to any additional infections.

VISITOR RESTRICTIONS - INPATIENT UNIT

In line with latest government advice and to try to prevent the spread of Covid-19, we are restricting the number of visitors allowed to visit patients to one close family member at any one time.

In order to minimise the risk of infection in our hospices, we are following the latest government guidance for those who have recently travelled abroad to affected areas.

DAY THERAPY & FAMILY SUPPORT

Unfortunately, this means that with immediate effect we will be closing our therapy and bereavement groups until further notice. The relevant teams will be in touch with patient and clients. Please do not visit the hospice without telephoning first. 

Check this guidance before visiting us and note that the guidance is subject to change and should be regularly reviewed.
