Visiting our hospices, shops and donation centres

img

We’re continuing with the following measures for the foreseeable future:

At our hospices all front-line staff will continue to wear the necessary and extra PPE on the wards and visitors are being asked to carry on wearing masks if they are able to.  At present we can only welcome designated patient visitors into our hospices – we are unable to welcome other visitors at this time.

In our shops and donation centres, our staff and volunteers will continue to wear masks/visors and till screens and sanitiser stations remain in place.  We are also encouraging our customers to continue to wear a face covering if they are able to.

We hope you understand our stance and thank you for your support. As a health care charity, keeping everyone safe is paramount to us and without the income from our shops we can’t operate our hospices.

Cornwall Hospice Care Covid-19 statement

Cornwall Hospice Care has ensured Covid-19 risk assessments have been carried out in all areas of our charity. Where required, adjustments have been made to ensure working environments are as Covid secure as is practically possible.

The safety of our patients, their families, our staff, volunteers, customers and supporters is paramount. We work closely with all relevant authorities and advisory bodies to ensure we are following current guidelines, implementing any changes as necessary.

Thank you!

In these challenging times our world has changed in many different ways. However, the one constant has been the care we provide at our two hospices that have remained open 24/7 admitting patients to our 20 end-of-life and specialist palliative care beds.

As a charity we rely heavily on the support of the people of Cornwall, people like you, who leave us legacies, support our virtual fundraising events, play our lottery and donate to, and buy in, our shops and donation centres.

Thank you, we need you now more than ever!
