Visiting information

Changes to visiting St Christopher’s from 13 April 2022:

  • Visitors to St Christopher’s are no longer be required to complete an LFD test before visiting the hospice if they have no symptoms.
  • If visitors do have symptoms we will require you to take an LFD test or not to visit the hospice.
  • There will be no limit as to who can visit or the number of visitors but we ask that each patient only has two visitors on the wards at any one time.
  • All areas of the hospice will now be open to the public and we are looking to extend opening hours in the Anniversary Centre.
