Compton VS Covid19: Stepping Up

In line with current government guidelines to help reduce the spread of Coronavirus, we are limiting the number of people on our sites.

We ask that anyone presenting with Coronavirus symptoms, do not attend our patient facing sites and self-isolate.

Patients staying on our Inpatient Unit are permitted to receive one visitor per day. We are happy to make allowances in exceptional circumstances.
We thank you in advance for your cooperation with this matter.

The entire Compton family is working incredibly hard to ensure our patients and families continue to get the care and support they need throughout this pandemic.   

We’re also doing our bit to support our NHS partners by freeing up some of their time and resources so they can focus on fighting Covid19 and saving lives.  

Here’s what we’re doing: 

  1. Opening more beds at Compton Hall

We’ve added 1 extra bed to our Inpatient Unit and created a temporary 6 bed ward in our currently empty Living Well Centre.  

As well as supporting our patients with specialist palliative care needs, we’ll also support those who are frail. These patients are a vulnerable group and take up a large proportion of hospital admissions.  

These measures will help to reduce the number of NHS hospital admissions and free up beds for critical and Covid19 care.    

 

2. Supporting District Nurses

Our Compton community team provide specialist care and support to patients in their own homes and often work in conjunction with District Nursing teams.  

We will help to free up the District Nursing teams by taking on some of their community work supporting those with less complex palliative care needs. 

3. Support for healthcare professionals

As well as continuing to offer specialist advice, the team will also offer information to GPs, Care Home Staff and other professionals who’re seeking guidance on supporting people with less complex palliative and end of life care needs.  

Where we can, and for as long as we can, we are committed to caring for our patients and supporting the NHS to save lives.
