Book a visit

Welcome to our booking portal for out-of-the-care-home visits

 

After a long year of national restrictions, thank you for supporting your relative with a visit out-of-the-care-home. 

The Government has further lifted restrictions in England which mean residents can leave their care home to spend time outdoors, without needing to self-isolate for 14 days when they return after a low-risk visit. 

All out-of-the-care-home visits require at least 48 hours' notice and are subject to review by the home's management team, which means they are not guaranteed if the risk is deemed high (other visiting options may also be available).

Please read 'Important information for booking out-of-the-care-home visits' and 'How to book an out-of-the-care-home visit online' below before proceeding with your booking.

Before the out-of-the-care-home visit can be considered, we need you to agree to all the risk assessment statements below when booking online:

  1. About you (relative/visitor) - you agree that you:
    a) are one of the nominated visitors, already agreed in advance with the resident (where possible) and the care home
    b) will have an LFT test in the care home at least 30 minutes before the scheduled visit time (a negative result is required)
    c) have received a Covid-19 vaccination*
  2. About the resident - you agree that the resident:
    a) is fully vaccinated against Covid-19*
    b) will have an LFT test in the care home at least 30 minutes before the scheduled visit time (a negative result is required)
    c) will be supported to follow all social distancing, hand hygiene and face covering guidance as required throughout the out-of-home visit
  3. About the planned visit - you agree that:
    a) the planned visit will only take place outdoors
    b) if using indoor facilities during the out-of-home visit e.g. toilets or travelling in a car (in line with Government guidance at the time), a face mask must be used
    c) public transport will not be used at any point before, during or after the visit
  4. Test and Trace - you agree that:
    a) in the event of a breach of PPE/restrictions or an outbreak, you understand that WCS Care is required to share your details with NHS Test and Trace who may contact you to discuss self-isolation and/or Covid testing  

* a more detailed risk assessment is required if either the resident is not fully vaccinated or the relative hasn't had a vaccination, so please get in touch with us to discuss (other visiting options may also be available).

Please do not proceed with your visit if you have recently tested positive for Covid-19, have symptoms or have otherwise been asked to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace.
