Our COVID-19 Response

We continue to do our best to support you.

This includes visits using NHS Trust procedures that help to protect yourself, those around you, and ourselves. We are also trying to minimise time spent in your home, often performing work outside of them (including in gardens).

We understand that you may not wish us to visit in person. For this, and indeed anywhere else possible, we will try to assist remotely using other means, including phone calls and Team Viewer.

Please feel free to contact us if you wish to discuss this, or any other matters.
