We continue to be amazed and inspired by the dedication and fortitude shown by our nursing, care and support staff; both those at the front line in hospitals and those continuing to support people with special needs, the elderly, chronically ill and infirm. These challenges are set to intensify in the near future and we want you to know from all the team here, first and foremost, that we are hugely grateful for all that you do.
We are hearing from many of you that you are already juggling complex family and work responsibilities alongside your own wellbeing. The health community is small but strong and we want you to know that the team here have got your back. The coming weeks may test our ability as a nation to respond to this health emergency and look after the most vulnerable people in our society. There may be times ahead where you feel upset, exhausted or worried or feel your physical and mental health is being tested to the limit. We also know that you are the ultimate calm and pragmatic professionals in a crisis and that your skills and compassion will be vital in turning the tide on Covid19. We will be doing everything we possibly can to support you.
All of our branches continue to operate as normal, we are moving much of our training online and we are redoubling our efforts to increase our nursing and care workforce. We anticipate that we will need to adapt, respond and adjust how we operate over the coming days and weeks. We have already reviewed all of our operational processes to ensure that we provide the best service we can to you. If you have spotted ways we could change what we do to make things better for you in these exceptional times, do let us know.
Thank you for your continued efforts, perseverance and resilience. You have all been extraordinary.
