Thank you for all your NHS support
I want to say a huge thank you to the patients, the public and partner organisations who are helping Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. This has been a difficult year for us all and the local community has been a huge part of our response to Covid-19. We are grateful for the humbling support you have given us through donations, kind messages, equipment and Clap for Carers on a Thursday at 8pm. You have made our jobs and personal lives easier, thank you.
At Sherwood, we have made rapid changes to our services including restricting visitors to our sites, postponing and cancelling appointments and delivering services in different ways such as outpatient appointment on the telephone or computer. Throughout this, our aim is to keep patients and colleagues at Sherwood safe and we are proud of our safety record. I believe we have made the right decisions based on the evidence available but I do recognise these changes will have impacted on you and we are sorry for this.
It is clear we will be living with Covid-19 in our hospitals and communities for a long time to come, whilst we also provide care for the many other patients who do not have Covid-19. I want to briefly explain what we are doing to restore services and what you can expect when you come to one of our hospitals.
