Good Morning Everyone,
I'm sure you've all become aware that the government are suggesting that those over 70 should self isolate. This could be imposed in the coming weeks and will be in place for "an extended time."
At this stage, there are no guidelines as to what this means regarding hospital appointments etc, however some hospitals are already suspending "non-urgent" appointments ahead of government advice.
Please stay in contact with your hospital about what they are doing and what their advice is about appointments.
The Government is also issuing daily briefs about the coronavirus and hopefully more information about what this self isolation will mean for those over 70.
Meanwhile, we have suspended our face-to-face services, but are still providing plenty of support over the phone. Please find more details via the following link:
