NHS England and our local NHS provider have decided that only necessary communications will be undertaken during the period of mourning following the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth ll.
This decision will not impact communications necessary to patient care, patient care, appointments or any operations that underpin the running of NHS services:
“…most proactive communications from across our organisation. This includes press releases, social media posts and virtual or in person events and webinars. If you have any meetings or events which are not required to keep services running normally and require any advice on how to proceed, please see Government guidance on national mourning:
Our local NHS partner has made mental health support available to staff of both the NHS and its wider cross sector partners:
- West Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership Mental Health and Wellbeing Hub, call 0808 1963833 or see more mental health and wellbeing support online
- West Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership Grief and Loss Service call our freephone number 0808 1963833 or speak to us online
As Act As One partners, The VCS Alliance feels this is the correct decision and will therefore be only undertaking those communications necessary to the continued operation of the organisation.
We would like to take this opportunity, on behalf of the VCS, to offer our condolences to the Royal Family on their personal loss.
