Here at Marymount we constantly strive to seek a balance between managing the risk posed to our Residents and Patients by COVID-19 and other communicable diseases with an appreciation for the importance of visiting by family and friends.


NOTICE : 01/09/2023

Therefore regrettably,  we kindly request that visiting to this Ward is limited to essential attendance only. We kindly request that ALL visitors to St Catherines would please wear a surgical mask whilst on the ward. It is essential that every person entering Marymount adhere to strict Hand Hygiene practices before and after visiting- NOTE- there are alcohol hand gel dispensers throughout the building. We are most grateful that you follow the guidance we have in place at this time and consider the safety of our vulnerable cohort of patients.  If you have any further queries please don’t hesitate to contact us on 0214869100 and your query will be directed as appropriate. Should you wish to arrange a virtual visit please contact the ward and we would be more than happy to arrange this. As always we request that anyone displaying any respiratory or gastric symptoms refrains from attending the hospital for the safety of our staff and patients and to minimise the impact to our vital service. Thank you sincerely for your cooperation and patience at this time.  By adhering to this protocol we hope to bring a swift close to the outbreak and return to normal operation in the very near future.
