Evesham MIU Temporary Closure over the Bank Holiday Weekend

Welcome to Evesham Community Hospital
What are community hospitals/rehab units?
We have seven community hospitals/rehab units across Worcestershire. They provide a range of inpatient and outpatient services and support people to recovery from surgery or illness when they don't require acute care but neither can they be treated at home. They are a key part of our local healthcare system.

We encourage relatives and friends to visit and there is open visiting between the hours of 2pm until 7pm.
Outside of these hours we are happy to still receive visitors to the ward but we would respectfully request that you speak with the Ward Manager or Nurse in Charge to arrange this. Staff will be receptive to your wishes as they understand that some of you may wish to participate in the care of your relative or help them at meal times.
We understand that some may have to travel a distance for visiting and that others may wish to remain on the ward for longer periods of time, particularly if your relative maybe coming to the end of their life. If there is a need to remain on the ward, there is a relative’s room which you may wish to use as a place to relax.
