Thank you to everyone who has kindly donated in support of the NHS - we are hugely grateful.
Our teams are working very hard manage the impact of coronavirus and it has really lifted spirits to see that our local community are behind us.
However we must ask you not to come onto the hospital site without prior permission. This is to help us ensure the safety of you, our patients, staff and the wider community.
Please do not come to the hospital unless you have arranged it with us first.
We also ask that people do not donate hot food as unfortunately it cannot be stored or distributed safely and could pose a risk to our staff. Instead we would like to encourage you to contact your local food bank to see if you can donate any food items there.
If you have any donations for our staff please arrange it with us first by contacting our Patient Advice and Liaison Service Team iownt.PALS@nhs.net
Thank you again for all your continued support, we hope you and your loved ones have a safe and happy Christmas.
