We’re continuing to do everything we can to reduce the impact of COVID-19 at Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice and John Taylor Hospice.

To ensure the risk to patients, families and colleagues remains low, please follow our safe visiting guidance:

  • Mask wearing is still required when visiting the hospice. Disposable surgical masks are available from our Reception and Inpatient Unit Teams.
  • Only visitors providing personal care for their loved ones are required to take a lateral flow test before visiting. Examples of personal care includes assisting with hygiene needs, toileting and bed changing. You will not need to test more than twice a week.
  • Our hospice colleagues will continue to ask COVID-19 screening questions before your visit and will ask that you do not attend the hospice if you have COVID-19 symptoms or have tested positive.
  • If you have tested positive for COVID-19 and wish to visit a loved one, please speak to a member of the Inpatient Unit Team about your individual circumstances.
  • We would kindly ask all visitors to continue washing their hands and to use hand sanitiser regularly while they are in the hospice.

The hospice remains open for visitors 24 hours a day.

If you have any questions about visiting, please call the ward to talk to the team – 0121 472 1191 for Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice and 0121 465 2000 for John Taylor Hospice.
