Dear colleagues, Before Christmas I reflected on the strength of our response to the first wave of Covid-19 and our outstanding outcomes. I also focussed on the superb work you all led in our recovery of all services and the thousands of patients who received care as a result. I explained our pre-emptive decision to [...]

Dear Colleagues, We’re approaching a Christmas unlike any we’ve experienced in recent times. The strengthening of the tier system and rising community transmission of Covid-19 sends a signal that the Covid pandemic is far from over. At the same time the long nights and cold temperatures of winter make the necessary restrictions on how we [...]

Dear colleagues, I write this in the middle of the country’s second lockdown. Once again, our daily lives have had to be restricted to prevent the rising transmission of coronavirus in communities across the country. Things feel different this time. There is slightly more freedom than before and our children can still go to their [...]

Dear colleagues, As we experience more typically autumnal weather we focus ever more intently on preparing for winter. For working parents, the re-opening of schools and universities this month brings some relief from home schooling, but I think many of us are wondering how to manage sporadic periods of isolation if they occur. Among CUH [...]

Dear colleagues, As we approach the end of the academic year in schools, many of us are feeling the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic for our children, grandchildren, nephews, nieces and friends.

Dear colleagues, It is hard to believe that we have now entered the second half of the year 2020. For the last few weeks we’ve been moving through a transition period where at home we’re coming out of lockdown, and at work we’re facing up to a hospital that is completely changed as a result [...]

Dear colleagues, Even though three months have now passed in this pandemic, our lives at home and at work are still changing. With some children heading back to school and shops opening, new domestic routines are taking shape for many of us. Here in our hospitals we’ve had to embrace wearing masks in all areas [...]

Dear colleagues, The sun has been shining brightly this week and I hope you have found safe ways to enjoy some time outdoors. Roads, parks, shops and the streets around us are starting to feel busier. This is a hopeful yet tricky time as we try to figure out how best to manage our lives [...]
