The importance of attending healthcare appointments is being stressed by local NHS staff.
Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust have put out a series of videos featuring NHS staff who stress the importance of attending hospital for appointments and other treatments.
Their acting chief executive, Nicky Lloyd said:
“Our teams have worked incredibly hard to resume services that were put on hold as we tackled the pandemic. In addition, we’ve put in place very stringent infection control and health and safety measures to keep the public, and our staff, safe.
Now it’s vitally important that people attend for their appointments so we can monitor their healthcare issues and deal swiftly with any problems before they become more serious.
There is obviously a backlog of work that’s built up during Covid and we are doing all we can to manage this, but we do need the co-operation of our local communities in helping us to stay on top of our waiting lists and keep everyone safe and well.”
