Regional updates

We are arranging window visits by appointment at all homes able to facilitate them. Please see our latest update to find out more about this and our project to install safe visitor rooms in our homes.

For region-specific updates, please click on the region below. This was updated with a timeline for completion of the visitor rooms on Monday 16 November.

Gloucestershire

Bespoke Visiting Rooms

Four homes will begin installation work this week, and a further four next week. If the contractors' schedule continues to plan, the estimated date of completion for homes across Gloucestershire is 7 December.

We will update as the homes' rooms are completed.

Pending completion of these rooms the below measures are still in place.

The Director of Public Health for Gloucestershire's decision of 22 October to close care homes was updated on November 10 which brings the county line with all other regions. Please see the Director's letter here and Gloucestershire County Council's care home visiting principles here.

We review our protocols weekly to ensure that our residents are comfortable during visits whilst keeping them protected from the risk of coronavirus. We are currently working hard on our dedicated visitor rooms to ensure the best protection is in place for internal visits.

Please note that Grace Care Centre in Thornbury is covered in our South Gloucestershire update.
