Coronavirus (COVID 19) – our guidance to service users and families – update

Dear Relatives, Friends and Next of Kin,

I am pleased to advise that we now have no further cases of confirmed Covid-19 at The Chiswick. Any Residents who were isolating as a result of having symptoms or having tested positive for the virus, have now completed their period of isolation. 

As a part of our rigorous efforts to maintain the current position we continue to test every employee every day / night that they work; and every resident once per week. 

At the present time, and as a part of the established outbreak cycle operated by Public Health England, the home will remain closed to new admissions and, I am afraid, to visitors.

Our normal exceptional visiting arrangements remain in place for those who are close to the end of life. I am, of course, aware of the announcements issued by the Minister for Health regarding re-establishing structured and regulated visits for Residents from a named visitor, and we very much welcome that initiative.

My team are currently working on ways to implement the new system from the soonest possible date. 

The Minister had suggested 8th March 2021 as a start date, however our own situation will be governed as well by the date when Public Health England agree that we can re-open following a 28 day cycle from the most recent outbreak of the virus in the home. 

Details of the new visiting scheme and start date will be publicised on this web page ahead of that event. 

If you have any specific questions or if I can assist further, please do feel free to contact me by email: Steve.winter@chiswicknursingcentre.co.uk  or  0208 222 7800.
