Thank you for your continued support

As the NHS faces one of the biggest challenges it has ever faced, we want to say a huge thank you to all of our NHS, health and social care colleagues, other vital key workers and of course our wonderful staff.
As an NHS organisation that provides essential corporate and IT services to other NHS organisations, including Greater Manchester GP practices and Clinical Commissioning Groups, as well as other health and social care organisations, we are doing everything we can to support our colleagues during this extremely challenging time. 

Our response to the COVID-19 outbreak is consistent with our values to work in collaboration with our colleagues and partners and find innovative ways to support their services. Our quick response to the sudden increase in the need to work from home and demand for more digital technology and equipment has been met with an overwhelming amount of messages of support and kind feedback. Thank you to each and every one of you who has taken time out of an extremely busy day to say thank you. The support and feedback received across all of our services has been incredible.

Our priorities are to safeguard the health and wellbeing of our staff and ensure our services continue, and where necessary adapt, so that patients across the region continue to receive timely safe treatment. This is an extremely challenging time for everyone and we will continue to support the health and social care system as best we can to get through COVID-19 together.

The single biggest thing we can all do to protect ourselves and others at this time, is follow national guidance. Stay home, protect the NHS, save lives. National advice from the government is available on their website: GOV.UK. The latest COVID-19 advice from the NHS is available at NHS.UK.

Thank you all for your continued support.
