Covid19/Coronavirus - How Our Services Are Affected

Our priority is to make sure that service users, staff, volunteers, and members are kept as safe as possible.  We also aim to adapt our services to ensure that the general wellbeing of our service users and their families is supported.  This page will give information about our key services, and is valid as of February 2022.

Esmond Street Advanced Support Service

Service users at Esmond Street continue to be supported within the house. As restrictions have now been lifted, we have been able to reintroduce outings and the two household rule is no longer in place for socialising. Indoor visiting continues (this continued to be permitted as part of the guidelines re:Omicron).

All service users, family members and support staff follow the most up to date gudiance regarding testing. A negative LFT test is required from all parties before any visiting or outings can take place. PPE and hand hygiene procedures continue to be of fundamental importance and the service ensures it follows the most up to date guidance in relation to all areas of infection control. 

Please be aware that guidance for care homes from Public Health Scotland and Glasgow Health and Social Care Partnership can be subject to change, so we continue to advise people to  please contact Esmond Street directly for specific details in advance of your visit.  

Enhanced infection control procedures continue, and all staff undergo weekly PCR and daily LFT testing procedures.  We are in constant liaison with all relevant statutory services such as community medical staff, the Health and Social Care Partnership, and the Care Inspectorate.  If you require more information please contact the unit on 0141 352 7990
