A message to our members during the coronavirus pandemic
You will have read and heard much about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak recently and we are writing to you to assure you that we are working hard to keep our patients and staff safe.
You may find that some service changes are taking place. In some cases, we are delivering them in a different way. For example, some of our patients will be contacted by telephone for a consultation rather than being seen face to face. We are sure you will appreciate that this is to keep our patients, their families and our staff as safe as possible.
Public Board Meetings
Our public Board meetings have been moved to a virtual platform which means that they are still being held over a Skype facility allowing key Trust business to continue, but this does mean that currently and throughout the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, we will not have the facility to invite members of the public to attend. However, our Board papers are available on our website as usual during this phase and any questions you may have can be directed through to our membership office.
In order to protect our Governors and follow government advice, we have also stood down our Governor meetings, so they will not be attending Trust premises for any meetings or hosting engagement opportunities at this present time.
We value the work of our Governors and the contributions of our members and we are keeping our contact with you, our Governors and all our stakeholders and partners under review to ensure we provide the necessary assurance during these very unusual times.
There are many staff working very hard to ensure we continue to provide services to our patients and we can assure you that collectively we have a great team that are responding to this situation.
Our website provides a range of information and advice which we hope you find useful www.humber.nhs.uk
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for being a member of our Trust. If you have any queries about membership or would like to raise a question, please email our membership office at HNF-TR.firstname.lastname@example.org
Take care of yourselves and please follow the Government’s advice on how to stay safe.
