Important information for all visitors to Trinity – updated Thursday 26 March 2020

The Executive team at Royal Trinity Hospice is taking further steps to protect and reassure our patients, staff, volunteers and visitors.

Our first priority is to ensure their safety. 

If you have;

  1. a new continuous cough
  2. a high temperature of 37.8 degrees or higher

please strongly consider whether your visit is absolutely essential.

From Friday 27 March, the following visiting restrictions are in place:

  • Visiting hours are 1pm–7pm
  • Each patient is limited to two visitors per day 
  • Visitors over the age of 70, particularly those with long-term health conditions, should think very carefully before visiting
  • Under 16s should not visit unless by prior arrangement with the nurse in charge

Restrictions may be relaxed in individual cases, but this must be agreed in advance with the nurse in charge. We ask that you only come to Trinity if your visit is absolutely essential.

Please help us keep everybody as safe as possible by limiting your movements in the hospice to the room of the patient you are visiting (the café is closed to visitors). 

Service suspensions

Please note the following changes to our regular services:

  1. We are currently closed for all outpatient services. This applies to both appointments and group activity as well as social visits to the café. We have tried to contact as many patients as we can to inform them of this in advance.

  2. The Mulberry Café is closed

  3. Our in-house hairdresser is closed for appointments.
