Nightingale Homecare would like to reassure both our clients and our staff that we are keeping a close eye on developments with regard to Coronavirus (COVID-19). Please be assured we are committed to prioritising the wellbeing of all our clients and our staff. We are receiving regular updates from Public Health England, NHS & CQC and we are asking both our clients and staff to adhere to all of the advice being provided with the emphasis for our staff being on the washing of hands and the wearing of PPE between duties. As the current situation evolves should there be a need to review any aspect of our practices we will do so in accordance with the advice we are being given. We will continue to monitor the ongoing situation closely, adhering to all guidelines being provided to us which does not include the wearing of face masks as these are deemed by both Public Health & the NHS to be completely ineffective against combating the spread of Coronavirus. Please contact your local branch directly if you have any concerns with regards to your care and the COVID-19 virus.
