UHS executive team support open letter to Hampshire communities

Paul and Gail2We’ve signed up, alongside our medical and nursing director colleagues from across the region, to appeal to you, our community, to back the new government guidance and support our local healthcare services.

At UHS we’re seeing COVID cases rising rapidly and are having to ask our 12,000 plus staff, people who live and work amongst yourselves, to step up again to help meet the challenges of caring for our patients in this third wave of the pandemic - cancelling holidays and moving out of their normal roles to support colleagues in areas where we are struggling. 

It’s also forcing us to make very hard decisions about wider patient services which we’ve worked so hard to keep going since the first wave.

Please show your support by reading and sharing the letter

Thank you,

Paul Grundy, acting medical director 
Gail Byrne, chief nursing officer
