Advice for Patients, families and visitors about Coronavirus

Please do not visit the hospice inpatient unit or outpatient department if you have any of the following symptoms:

  • A new continuous cough OR
  • High temperature (37.8 degrees centigrade or higher)

If you have any of these symptoms, please stay at home and self-isolate for 7 days. If your condition worsens please call NHS 111 for advice.

In addition, patients being cared for in their own home will be asked prior to a visit by Rowcroft staff or volunteers if they have any of the above symptoms. This is to protect you and other patients and our people from potential infection.

All our services are currently ‘business as usual’; however, we are keeping up to date daily with Public Health England guidance and will post further information as needed.

Please remember the single most important way to prevent spread of coronavirus is by effective hand washing with soap and water. If visiting our inpatient or outpatient department we will ask you to wash your hands before entering clinical areas.
