Your NHS is working hard to maintain as wide a range of services as possible despite sadly once again seeing a significant increase in demands from Covid. It is really important that if you have concerns you access the NHS in the appropriate way. However, please do be patient with us, demands are much higher than normal and once your need is assessed it may take longer to treat you than we would normally want or expect. Please help us by keeping your distance, wearing a mask and washing your hands.
