Service Update !!

11th October 2021

TARPORLEY WAR MEMORIAL HOSPITAL

The Trustees of the Tarporley War Memorial Hospital (TWMH) have announced that they are entering into a period of redundancy consultation with all 24 members of staff.

Throughout 2021, staff at TWMH have been briefed and kept updated on the attempts to secure a strategic partnership with a partner or partners within the NHS. It remains the view of the Trustees that such a partnership is the only realistic solution to the long-term financial and operational challenges faced by the Hospital. These talks are continuing and progress is being made.

The decision to enter a period of redundancy consultation is not taken lightly. The Hospital suspended inpatient services in August this year as a result of pressures brought about by the pandemic and staffing shortages caused by the prolonged uncertainty. The Trustees believe that the most likely outcome is that the facility will continue to provide some healthcare services for the local community. However, the job roles required for such a change in the service model will be significantly different to those currently occupied by the staff.

Rachel Wright, Chair of the Trustees, comments: “The Tarporley facility is a much loved and treasured charity-funded hospital, providing local care for the surrounding region. Reluctantly and with a heavy heart, we are informing staff today that we will immediately enter a period of consultation with them. We will naturally be supporting staff as they seek alternative employment and will work with local healthcare providers and others outside the sector to highlight vacancies and opportunities. In the short term, the Hospital will continue to provide the current reduced range of services to the community”

The Trustees remain eager to seek a longer-term solution for the facility to continue to be used for the provision of healthcare services to the community, with fundraising remaining as an important link with the local community.

Responsible visiting at Tarporley War Memorial Hospital

Following the move into step 2 of the Government road map towards the easing of Covid 19 restrictions, we are pleased to be able to open up responsible visiting at Tarporley War Memorial Hospital.

Pre-booked visiting is allowed in most areas allowing one person at a time to book a slot. All visitors for that patients must be from the same household bubble.

These slots are strictly limited to 30 minutes during the allocated time 14:00- 15:00 and 18:00- 19:00.  We suggest that if you have access to a free rapid Covid 19 test (lateral flow) you test before visiting the Hospital, but this is not mandatory.

Visitors for patients who are receiving supportive end-of-life care, patients with specific needs who would benefit from the presence of a carer, and patients identified as requiring a visit on compassionate grounds will not be limited to the 30 minute booked slots. Please discuss these arrangements with Ward Manager Katherine McQue or SR Chris Bowen.

Outpatients

For Outpatient appointments, you should come alone as there is limited space due to social distancing.  If the nature of your appointment means you need someone to be with you, please discuss this with Out-Patient Manager, Jaime Armstrong, or Clinic Health Care Assistant Ewa Lacey.

Minor Injuries

Patients coming to TWMH with a Minor Injury please come into the hospital alone where possible if you can.

All visitors will be expected to wear PPE during their visit.

Visitors aren’t allowed in areas where Covid-19 patients are receiving care.

Please do not leave home if you have symptoms of Covid 19 and use the other alternative methods of keeping in touch with loved ones.

We know this is a challenging time and all of us at Tarporley War Memorial Hospital thank you for playing your part in keeping our patients, colleagues, and community safe.
