As part of a national directive from NHS England, we test service users on admission to our inpatient units. The testing aims to minimise the risk of infection on our inpatient wards from new admissions and ensure any positive cases receive appropriate care quickly.
Everyone is being asked to stay alert to save lives, protect the NHS and do what they can to stop coronavirus spreading. Please refer to the latest measures listed on the NHS website and www.gov.uk/coronavirus
We are keen to listen to staff and we welcome any questions, comments or concerns about the Trust’s management and response to Coronavirus by email to email@example.com if you cannot find the answer locally via your colleagues or line management, or on this site.
We will aim to provide a response in line with the urgency of the question. Emails will be considered by our Coronavirus Co-ordination Group on a weekly basis.
We know one size does not fit all, so please treat this as a guide and feel free to adapt it to suit your local circumstances. If you have any suggestions or feedback about how we can improve it, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
