At Saint Catherine’s we are doing everything we can to keep our patients, families, staff , volunteers and supporters safe at this difficult time.
Our key clinical services are still running, which means that patients are still being cared for in the hospice and at home.
However, in line with Government guidance and with safety paramount, we have taken the decision to reduce some face-to-face services and restrict visitors on site. Also, our hospice shops will be closed for the time being and we have postponed all of our fundraising events that were planned during the next few months.
Every decision being made is in the best interests of our patients, families, volunteers and staff.
We need your continued support and help more than ever as we continue to pay and support all our members of staff – we appreciate every donation, every message and every offer of support.

Video Calling our Patients

We have set up video calling facilities to allow families to communicate with their loved-ones during their stay on our Inpatient Unit.

Calls are possible using Skype, Zoom or alternatively WhatsApp.

If you would like to make use of this facility please fill in the form below so we can send you further information on how to get connected.

Video calls will need to be arranged with a member of our nursing team so they can set up the equipment ready for your call.

We can arrange calls when the patient is on their own and we will make sure you are connected successfully before leaving the equipment in the room for the duration of your call. Of course we are also happy for other visitors to be in the room too, in accordance with our current guidance on visiting during Covid-19.

Please contact us on 01723 351421 and select option 9 to hear the latest information on our visiting arrangements.

 

Please submit your contact details so we can send you further information on video calling.
