COVID-19 update 08/04/2020



The COVID-19 pandemic is likely to bring in its wake issues which are beyond the immediate direct problems of the infection but are linked to measures taken to prevent transmission and to the lived  experiences of those working with the consequences of infection, particularly health and social care staff. The information below may be helpful for  members, particularly those working in or with NHS staff at this time.
