You’ll all be aware that last weekend marked the changing of the clocks and the countdown towards better weather ahead, or so we’d like. We’ve also marked the year since lockdown began and paid our respects to those who died or have been affected by the pandemic. The clocks have changed and restrictions have eased ever so slightly, but the way we work hasn’t so, as always, it’s important to remain vigilant. We don’t yet fully understand all the effects of COVID-19, on mind and body, directly and indirectly, but we’re learning to live in a world with the virus. Vaccination gives us the opportunity to see it as a disease that can be more readily managed in the community. Our take up of the vaccine as a Trust has been good and is now available to all of our staff. If everyone has it, we can see a way through to looking at what we can do next, to make things better.

I’d like to start this week’s blog with a familiar message – please have your jab as soon as your opportunity arrives. Those 15 million who have had it already are people to be thanked and in our Trust, three quarters have now had their first dose - 6,090 of you. These are excellent figures, both nationally and within our Trust, but if you’ve been offered and not accepted the opportunity then I’m asking you to think again – remember that NHS hospitals treated 242,307 patients who were confirmed to have COVID-19 in 2020.
