As we approach the sixth week of ‘lockdown’, some people will be feeling isolated, so this week we want to raise awareness of loneliness, including highlighting the new Government campaign which offers a wide range of useful tips and advice to combat loneliness.

Also, with the coronavirus pandemic forcing Ramadan traditional mass gatherings, celebrations and pilgrimages to be altered or cancelled, we share messages from health experts and Muslim leaders on how Ramadan can still be celebrated in a safe way.

Finally, whilst we must continue to encourage people to stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives, we don’t want you to risk your health, or that of your loved ones, to do so. We reinforce the message that ‘Your NHS is here for you,’ and the support that’s still available including sexual health advice.
