Lateral Flow Testing for Visitors

Lateral Flow Testing for Visitors

We’re delighted to say our registered nurses can now test In-Patient visitors for Covid-19 before they come onto the unit. The process, called Lateral Flow Testing, is the same as the one used in care homes and gives a result within 30 minutes. Visitor testing adds another layer of protection for hospice patients, staff and visitors and helps keep our In-Patient Unit open so people in our community can get the support they need.
