Care Wyvern: Covid 19 Update

Covid -19 update 17th April 2020

We are very pleased to welcome back some of those staff that have been absent as a result of self-isolation, we continue to have some members of staff off. However, I am happy to say this number is smaller than it was. 

In line with the extended period of “lock down”, the office opening hours remain at 09:30 – 15:30 Monday – Friday. On-call continues to be covered outside of these revised times. The office is also being maned by a skeleton staff.

As an organisation we are adhering to the government guidance, we are also taking our responsibilities under our infection control measures very seriously. Should Care Wyvern be informed that there is a confirmed case of Covid – 19 we will be transparent in reporting this. We are also pleased to say that we have sufficient supplies of gloves and aprons. The advice from the Local Authority and the government continues to be that masks should only be warn if a client has or is suspected to have Covid-19. Staff do have access to masks if they need them. However, the supply of normal surgical masks is limited.  We also have access to water repellent masks for staff to access if they have to care for a person with Covid-19.   

These are very difficult times and as a result Care Wyvern will be using contingency planning measures to ensure all clients get the best care that can be offered with the current restrictions. Whilst following the contingency plan we have limited the access to the office, to only essential visits and to collect items of PPE.

We would like to thank all of our clients for their support and patience. It must be recognised that Care Wyvern is very fortunate to have a staff team that are dedicated to their role, their clients and the company and continually go the extra mile to carry out their duties. We are so proud of our team and cannot thank them enough.

The risk to the UK has been raised to high.
