We are working closely with Public Health England/NHS England guidelines to maintain our services for those children and young people.
We want to keep in touch with you and will continue to offer our support to you all during this time. We are maintaining business as usual as far as we can but, as you will understand, we have had to make some changes to how we deliver our care. This is to protect your family as well our staff and the wider community.
We are exploring ways to resume some aspects of our service that were suspended but will be doing this carefully and safely, in line with guidance from our local CCG’s.
Our working hours are currently 9-5pm Monday- Friday.
Video calls are available and we are using Zoom to provide virtual visits and some music and play therapy sessions. Zoom is a free app which can be used on any device and this will allow you to communicate more directly with a member of our team.
Face-to-face visits , sessions and groups are gradually being re-introduced in line with government guidance. Our priorities are to provide acute oncology treatment, urgent assessments and end of life care for children. This is in accordance with the current national directives for Community paediatric services.
We are working very closely with other Children’s community teams, Children’s Hospices, local hospitals and Tertiary centres across our whole area to continue to provide care.
