COVID-19 & Changes to our Services

Home From Hospital has been continuing to support people throughout the pandemic. We have been helping people with shopping and prescription / medication collection, doing doorstep deliveries, which are continuing too. In addition our Service Coordinator has been supporting people with other things that help to keep people at home from hospital. We are beginning to plan to introduce home visits again but we will be doing so with caution and with procedures in place to keep everyone involved safe.
