VISITOR by pre-booked timed appointment only

Unfortunately we are having to restrict our visiting here at The Clavadel so please see below:

We can only allow 1 nominated visitor per patient on any one day and this must be by timed pre-booked appointment only with our Reception Team.

This visit can now take place in our Drawing Room in the section allocated at the front of this room but we cannot allow anyone to come into any other part of that room or the rest of the building.

Please be aware that the patient can only nominate the same visitor for the duration of their inpatient stay with us which will limit the number of people entering the building.

Upon arrival in our car park, your visitor will have their temperature taken and we will then take them via the Drawing Room French doors where there will be hand sanitiser and masks (which are now compulsory indoors)

Visitors can either use the QR track and trace code on their phones or Reception can manually take their details

By making a timed appointment, this will ensure we can manage the number of visitors to this area at any one time.

Unfortunately we cannot allow any children under 12 years old

Please note: we able unable to let any visitors into the building to use our toilet facilities

We are sure you will understand that this is entirely for the safety of all our patients in the building
