The UK Government is closely monitoring the spread of the coronavirus and is taking action at home and abroad. The overall risk of coronavirus to the UK remains moderate, with the risk to individuals low.


Saint Francis Hospice would like to reassure patients, families, friends and supporters that we are working on business continuity plans to ensure that the Hospice remains open. We will continue to monitor the situation and follow the latest published advice.


Please do not visit the Hospice, attend any of our events or activities, or visit any of our retail charity stores if you have returned back from China or other affected within the last 14 days, or had contact with somebody with Coronavirus. The list of countries is available here.


Do you have any of these symptoms?


If yes, please don't visit, stay indoors and phone NHS 24 (111) for advice or access the web based helpline.


As the situation develops, the countries identified and the advice given is updated daily, so please visit the NHS website for the latest information. More information and advice can also be found at: gov.uk/coronavirus.


When entering Saint Francis Hospice, please ensure you use the hand sanitiser gel provided at reception and around the Hospice and regularly wash your hands with soap and water.


Thank you for your co-operation. Please call 01708 753319 if you have an enquiry.
