Covid 19 Visiting Update
We care about COVID safety.
The health, safety and well-being of our residents, visitors and team members is paramount.
We can assure you that your priorities regarding safety, care, cleanliness, and enjoyment are ours too.
We take this responsibility very seriously. As such, we have implemented robust infection control measures in line with Government and Public Health England advice to ensure the safety of everyone who lives and works within Burlington Care.
These measures include:
- Wearing PPE
- Regular testing and temperature checking
- Social distancing
- Enhanced cleaning
- COVID-19 training
We are pleased to report that NHS healthcare professionals are now vaccinating residents and team members at all of our homes. We are keeping residents and relatives updated with our progress. The Covid-19 vaccination rollout programme is being driven by the local health boards and by GPs in England. Timings vary from area to area, dependent on when NHS healthcare professionals receive a supply of vaccines and how many doses they receive in each delivery.
However, we are in regular contact with the health boards and our local GP surgeries for updates. We are working closely with them to ensure everyone has the opportunity to be vaccinated safely and as soon as possible. With two doses of the vaccine being needed for immunisation to be fully effective, we do not expect to make changes to the measures in place at our homes until after the second dose has been delivered.
Due to some variances in visiting guidance and restrictions across several different local authorities, please contact the relevant home to discuss the visiting arrangements in place locally. – Click here: https://www.burlingtoncare.com/homes/
