Care is at the centre of everything we do...
‘I hope that this finds you and your families safe and well in these extraordinary times.
At St Luke’s the team is working tirelessly to protect our residents and ensure that St Luke’s remains free from Covid-19. We have introduced further stringent measures to prevent the transmission of Covid-19 in our patients and staff. Some staff have had to self-isolate at home because they have family members at home who are vulnerable, others chose to sleep at the hospital in order to reduce the risk of bringing the infection in or taking it home. Some generously volunteered their services to St Luke’s, others worked extra shifts, often at short notice, and a number have changed their roles to meet these challenging circumstances showing remarkable flexibility and commitment.
After considerable searching earlier this year we managed to source vital items of personal protective equipment so that we can protect both patients and staff and can ensure that the high standards of nursing that we are renowned for are still met. At present there is more availability of these items. We have made an appeal on our website for any help that you might be able to give towards the unanticipated costs of this equipment and additional support nursing.
Most of all, the management and trustees of St Luke’s are grateful to you the residents and your families for your understanding and support in the implementation of measures deemed necessary to tackle this challenging and evolving situation.’

Not just the beneficiary of high quality health and nursing care, but also of great kindness and thoughtfulness from all who participated in care
I loved everything about St Luke's; the warm welcome, the relaxed atmosphere you can feel all around you, where encouragement takes the place of pressure.

Thank you so much for making St Luke's the kind, caring, professional place it is. I cannot put into words how much it has meant to me.
