Visiting (updated January 2021)

Due to the current increase in cases nationally and locally, we urgently need to reduce the number of people coming to our hospitals.

We have therefore taken the decision to restrict visiting unless:

  • A person is receiving end of life care, regardless of their covid status
  • Are visiting a child – one parent
  • Is in the person’s best clinical interests and agreed in line with our internal processes

If you are visiting in one of these circumstances, please arrange this with us first. We will ask you to sign a risk assessment. We will provide you with personal protective equipment.

We know you will want to stay in touch while your relative or friend is in hospital. Patients are able to use their own or one of our mobile devices to telephone, video call or message.

Please bear in mind the confidentiality of other patients when you do this.

Our ward staff should be able to help you to stay in touch using a mobile device. You can also contact or arrange to send messages via our patient experience team by calling 01208 834620 or emailing cft.patientexperience@nhs.net

 

You would be admitted to Perran and Carbis Wards if you were experiencing acute distress; there was concern for your own safety or that of others as a result of your mental health.

If you are admitted to Perran and Carbis Wards you will have your own en-suite bedroom and access to communal gardens and lounge areas. Other ward facilities include gym, multi-faith room, therapy kitchen and games room. The occupational therapy team facilitates therapeutic and meaningful activities/events for patients to participate in on the wards.
