Critical incident stood down

Following our trust tactical group review today, we have stepped down our critical incident status. The group considered whether we were able to maintain critical services over the next period and concluded that we had robust plans in place to maintain these services. However, our hospitals remain very busy and the number of staff we have self-isolating and symptomatic are also still high.

We anticipate that we have some very difficult weeks ahead of us and might need to go back into critical incident to help us ensure we can still provide our critical services.

Thank you to all colleagues and our external partners for your hard work and support to help improve the situation.
