Service Update 24th March 2020
- Posted by: Kate Palmer
Message from Lesley Robbins|CEO:
Following the announcement last night by the Prime Minister and a lengthy consultation this morning with our management team and service team leaders we have taken the very difficult decision to suspend many of our services.
Balancing the needs of our vulnerable services users, and their families, against the health and safety of our staff and the community at large during this national emergency has been so very hard to do. For everyone concerned we feel that this is the most appropriate course of action and one which we will continually review over the coming days and weeks.

I would once again like to thank my amazing team for their continued dedication and creativity during this testing time. Despite temporarily closing White Lodge we will still be able to offer some remote support via phone and video where required.
Most of all I would like to thank the service users and so many families for their understanding over the last few days. We know that our decision may be of great disappointment but please rest assured that we will do all that we can to re-introduce services at the soonest possible time.
In the meantime we sincerely hope you all follow the guidelines that the government have communicated. The lives of many people will depend on it and we all need to do our bit to help mitigate the spread of this dreadful disease and enable our heroic healthcare workers save lives.
We really do hope that life returns to normal as soon as possible but in the meantime we hope and pray that you stay safe.
