Dear all,

We at Minster Care acknowledge what an exceptionally challenging past 18+ months have been for all our care staff, residents and families and I am proud of the remarkable effort and dedication shown. The safety and wellbeing of our residents and staff continues to be our priority and we continue to protect them through precautionary and preventative measures. We hope that the knowledge that our homes are continuing to follow current COVID guidelines and that all our staff are vaccinated, is a welcome relief for you.

On the note of visitations, we are pleased to see our residents reuniting with family members and our homes continue to permit visitation in line with both national and local authority guidelines. For information on visitation rules, please see and contact each home directly for further information: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/visiting-care-homes-during-coronavirus/update-on-policies-for-visiting-arrangements-in-care-homes

We would like to remind all visitors to continue to exercise caution whilst visiting loved ones to minimise risks for our residents and staff. All visitors are required to provide proof of negative lateral flow, wear PPE at all times and use hand sanitiser. As the pandemic continues, it is all of our responsibility to protect those around us, especially our residents who are some of the most vulnerable in our society.

Thank you again for your dedication as we work to see an end to this crisis

Kind regards,

Mahesh Patel
Chief Executive
