Visits inside the Hospice are suspended due to the recent increase in Covid-19 cases nationally
Window visits will continue to be in place between 1pm-3pm for up to 2 visitors at a time
All visits must be booked in via reception prior to the visit and a pre-visit health assessment will be carried out. We will collect your details for NHS Track and Trace
Patients at the end of life will be allowed one visitor inside their room, as well as window visits (as above)
All visitors must wear a face covering, practise social distancing and adhere to strict handwashing
The health, safety and wellbeing of our patients, staﬀ and community remains our absolute priority. We will review our visiting policy regularly.
The decision has been taken to close the Vitality Centre, apart from for prearranged appointments and telephone consultations. These appointments will take place as usual, but you will be asked to wash your hands on entry to the Vitality Centre and before your appointment.
Our lottery collectors are no longer calling on our lottery players to collect their subscriptions.
If you have not had a collection this week, please send us a cheque for the number of weeks you wish to be include (please send to Lottery, St Rocco's Hospice, Lockton Lane, Bewsey, Warrington) or sign up to direct debit to continue to be part of the draw.
Sadly, we have taken the difficult decision to cancel all of our fundraising events until September. This includes the Starlight Ladies Walk, March to the Match, Dragonboat Racing and Golf Day. If you have signed up for one of these events, you will be contacted shortly by our supporter care team. If you have any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org

We know that this is a very scary and worrying time for most of us and that a lot of people will be concerned with how their mental health will be affected.
We are very lucky to have an amazing Counselling and Emotional Care Team here at St. Rocco's who have provided a few tips on how you can manage your mental health in this time.
Tips for Looking After Your Mental Health
1. Keep connected - take time to phone and write to friends and family.
2. Try not to follow every news update if it makes you anxious. Pick one time to catch up with news and stick to it.
3. Take regular exercise, every day if possible. Even a walk will help clear your head.
4. Try writing things down, or journalling your feelings. It may help them seem clearer.
5. Accept that you have no control over this situation, but that things will not be the same forever.
We also have resources for those who may be living with a bereavement during this time.
£15 can provide homemade meals for a patient for a day
£30 can provide a week’s supply of hand sanitiser for our doctors and nurses
£35 can provide protective gloves so nurses can care safely for a week on the inpatient unit
£50 can provide a session of specialist bereavement counselling for someone who has lost a loved one
