Hospice services


There are currently no visitor restrictions at Cransley Hospice, however we do recommend that where possible and depending on the health of the patient, that visitor numbers are kept to between 2-4 people and within the hours of 8 am and 8 pm.

We ask that all visitors wear a facemask unless they are exempt from doing so, and not to visit if they have any symptoms of Covid or other infectious illness.
