Changes to Visiting at ASPH

We have changed our visiting restrictions at Ashford and St Peter’s hospitals so that a relative, carer or friend can visit an inpatient for 1 hour each day. To book a visit appointment visitors must call the dedicated telephone line 01932 723318 between 1000 – 1600 Monday to Friday when the line is open. If any visitors need to book a visiting slot outside of those hours, they will need to contact the relevant ward directly.

Children’s wards, Maternity, A&E and ITU are managing the situation locally, so for more specific guidance, queries or information, please speak with the relevant department.

Due to the national changes around testing, we are no longer asking visitors to lateral flow test before entering one of the hospital sites, but infection prevention and control measures such as temperature checks, sanitising hands, social distancing and wearing a surgical mask inside the hospitals remain in place.

Wearing Face Masks in our Hospitals

All patients, visitors, and staff are expected to use a new surgical mask issued by the checkpoint teams when they arrive at all hospital sites. If you are wearing your own face covering or mask you will be asked to remove this and use a new mask for the duration of your visit. The mask must cover your mouth and nose and be worn at all times, unless your clinician asks you to remove it.

There are checkpoints by each entrance and you will be asked to use the hand sanitiser provided and have your temperature taken (by a forehead thermometer). On exit, please dispose of the mask in the clinical waste bin provided and sanitise your hands.

It is expected that everyone on the hospital sites wears a mask with the following exceptions, in line with national guidance:

  • children under the age of 11 (Public Health England do not recommended face coverings for children under the age of 3 for health and safety reasons)
  • people who cannot put on, wear or remove a face covering because of a physical or mental illness or impairment, or disability
  • where putting on, wearing or removing a face covering will cause you severe distress
  • if you are speaking to or providing assistance to someone who relies on lip reading, clear sound or facial expressions to communicate

 

Changes to the visiting arrangements for patients at the end-of-life

We have made some changes to the visiting arrangements for patients at the end-of-life. We are now able to accommodate one nominated visitor for up to one hour each day or two nominated visitors on alternate days during a patients stay. The patient must still be referred and reviewed by the Specialist Palliative Care Team prior to visiting, and visits must be pre-arranged each day with the ward nursing team.
