Bedside visits to patients at East Cheshire Hospice are still being allowed during the new national lockdown.
There are already limited restrictions in place for visitors to the inpatient unit and these will continue over the four-week period.
The Hospice will also carry on with limited outpatient services at the Sunflower Centre, while the Hospice @Home service continues as normal.
Hospice shops at Thornton Square, Wilmslow and Poynton have closed until the lockdown ends on December 2, although online sales will continue via the shops’ Facebook pages.
Volunteers will continue to work on reception and staff will work from home where possible.
Meanwhile, the fundraising Firewalk event has been postponed from last Friday (Nov 6) to Friday 5th February 2021.
The Christmas tree collection will still go ahead on January 9/10 while complying to government restrictions.
Income Generation Director Rachel Allcock said: “We thank everyone for their patience and understanding during these difficult times.
“We will continue to deliver our services and will monitor the situation daily. If there is a change we will adapt accordingly to ensure we operate in a way that meets all Covid safety requirements. Our priority is the care of our patients in a safe and secure setting.”
The Hospice has not been able to hold a fundraising event since the last Christmas tree collection in January. A terrific community response has eased the financial strain and the hope is that the public will continue to support the Hospice during this latest lockdown.
