Hi just wanted to have a quick catch up and let you all know how things appear! Covid-19 has, in my opinion, had a huge effect on services for so many. I appreciate that the ‘forecast’ of how many would die was horrific and the NHS responded to this. However, this has led to a detrimental affect on other services not least mental health. I think that the lack of staff will show itself far more seriously in this area in the weeks and months to come.
An immense trigger will have longstanding consequences and I think that the deaths not from COVID-19 will be quite shocking. Focusing all admissions and treatments on one virus will have led to a change in treatment for other illnesses and I am sure we will see this.
I am not going to change the ethos of the CIC and am here to email and contact via Facebook whenever you need to be in touch.
