Update from Clavadel
The Clavadel is open for business as usual, we are fully staffed in all departments including trained nurses.
We can look after a patient who has either been discharged from hospital following a surgical episode and requires an extended convalescent stay or respite.
If you are currently booked in with us then please have no concerns about your stay, we are looking forward to greeting you and looking after you.
If your operation has been cancelled by a hospital or a surgeon then please call Tessa and she will discuss moving your stay dates to a future date.
As you would expect we have increased our screening measures in line with government guidance, these measures include;
We will be checking with hospitals, before a patient is admitted, about latest temperature reading and any other relevant COVID-19 symptoms. We reserve the right not to admit any patient showing COVID-like symptoms. Our nursing team will assess the patient’s isolation requirements on admission before they enter the building and this will be discussed prior to admission.
Following Government Guidance, The Clavadel will not be permitting visitors into the building until further notice nor are we allowing any external service providers to enter the building (no hairdresser, manicurist or podiatrist). We have taken the decision not to allow communal dining at this stage.
