COVID 19 Visiting Restrictions
To protect our patients, volunteers and staff, who are continuing to ensure people receive the care they need, we must follow Public Health Scotland guidance. Unfortunately, this means Kilbryde Hospice has introduced restrictions on visiting the Hospice. We are all extremely sorry for any upset this may cause however we must do all we can to save lives and protect all our patients and staff at Kilbryde Hospice. Hospice senior nursing and medical staff are continually monitoring Scottish Government guidance and will respond accordingly. Kilbryde Hospice will risk assess each patient and their situation individually.
