The health, safety and wellbeing of our residents and staff will always be our priority. This page has all the latest information on how we are managing the impact of coronavirus on our care services and will be updated as the situation evolves.

Coronavirus outbreaks at some of our sites

There are currently covid-19 outbreaks at some of our care homes and retirement communities, which has seen both staff and a small number of residents testing positive for covid-19.

We are doing everything we can to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of all staff and residents, and have introduced several additional measures in all sites. Both staff and residents at the affected sites are being testing in line with advice received from UKHSA (United Kingdom Health Security Agency, previously known as Public Health England) and we review this daily.

Visitors

Those sites that are currently in a lockdown situation are closed to all visitors. Extra care residents are also being advised to only accept essential visitors. We will keep residents and families updated on when this will change.

Our services

Some services at sites experiencing an outbreak have been temporarily closed to help manage the spread of the virus. Where services are running, we have a range of robust control measures in place, such as lateral flow testing, mask wearing and social distancing in place. We will continue to monitor them regularly so that we can run them safely, while always considering the latest government guidance, local infections rates as well as the safety and security of our staff.
