Chief Operating Officer
I wanted to use this week's message to provide you with an update on the evolving COVID-19 situation and provide information about the measures we are taking. As we are now treating patients with confirmed COVID-19 in the Trust we are increasing our response.
I know you will feel concerned for yourself and your families and that is something we all share.
However, as expressed in Suzanne's message last week it's really important that we stay calm and do not encourage unnecessary fear and panic.
Caring for patients who are unwell, often with infectious disease, is what we do every day.
We have the skills, knowledge and support to do the right thing and if we remain calm and approach each patient as we would normally we will get through this challenging time.
