Latest update for Visitors

Here at The Orders of St John Care Trust our priority is the safety and wellbeing of residents, colleagues and visitors in our services. Following Monday’s advice by the government on the vulnerability of the over 70s we have made the difficult but responsible decision to restrict access to our homes to all but the most essential visitors required to either to protect the health of our residents, or to ensure that buildings remain safe and essential supplies are delivered.
