Western Health and Social Care Trust response to COVID19

COVID 19

As you are aware positive cases of Covid 19 continue to rise within our Trust area.  This is undoubtedly a very worrying time for you and your family.  The Trust continue to liaise with the Department of Health and the Public Health Agency to ensure that they have the very latest guidance and that they adhere to it.  Our services, i.e. Day Care, Day Opportunities, Short Break have resumed to a level that is safe, where guidance is adhered to.  This will be kept under review in line with government advice.  If any change in arrangements are required we will notify you as soon as possible.

It is important that we continue to be vigilant and do not take any unnecessary risks.  I would ask that if you believe that your family member is unwell that they do not attend Day Care or Day Opportunities.  We need to be able maintain safety and contain the risks as much as possible.

Should you require support or advice please do not hesitate to contact your social worker.

Thank you for your continued support.  Please stay safe.
