Royal Trinity Hospice poster titled ‘Notice to all visitors’, informing visitors that a patient on the ward has tested positive for COVID-19, that any patients with symptoms are being isolated, and that patients are restricted to two visitors at a time, one of many leaflets and posters produced by Royal Trinity Hospice in response to the COVID-19 pandemic
At many points during the COVID-19 pandemic, there have been restrictions on visitors to hospices and care homes. This was however hugely difficult for residents and their families. This notice shows how Royal Trinity Hospice tried to keep visiting possible. It informs visitors that there have been positive COVID-19 tests and asks them to minimise risk by carefully following existing visiting precautions. For example, by requesting they limit their movements around the hospice.
Founded in 1891, Royal Trinity Hospice is England’s oldest hospice. They provide in-patient and community palliative and end of life care in South West London.
