Re-opening of the Southport Cancer Information and Support Centre
The team at the Southport Cancer Information and Support Centre are delighted to announce that following the recent easing of Covid-19 lock down restrictions we are able to start seeing service users face to face in our Centre on Stanley Street in Southport.
We have spent the last few weeks carrying out risk assessments and developing policies and protocols in order to resume our face to face service as safely as possible. This means that we have had to make some changes to the way we deliver our service. Initially we will only be offering pre-bookable appointments; we hope that we will be able to resume our drop-in service as soon as we feel it is safe to do so. We will be continually reviewing guidance etc. so that as soon as we can we will resume our support groups, courses and events etc.
In order to protect our staff, volunteers and service users, we will have to carry out a simple health screening questionnaire and check people’s temperatures before anyone can enter the Centre. In addition, unless there’s a medical reason why it’s not possible, visitors and staff will be required to wear a disposable mask or face covering of their own. All of the rooms that we use now comply with the 2 metre social distancing guidance. The Centre will be thoroughly cleaned at the start and end of each day all tables, chairs and used areas etc will also be wiped down after each person has left.
If you’d like to find out about the support that we can offer and book an appointment, please call the Centre on 07976 167188 (Monday to Friday, 10am to 4pm) so that we can arrange this for you.
