With ever changing COVID-19 restrictions, you and your children’s safety will always remain our focus and highest priority. In line with Government directions and to ensure your safety, if any of our Maternal and Child Health Nurses, Early Years Staff or Youth Staff display any COVID-19 symptoms, they must immediately be tested and isolate until they return a negative test result. At times, this does mean a sudden cancellation of an appointment. Whilst this can be inconvenient, we want to reassure you that your wellbeing, and that of our teams and Community, will always be our priority. Thank you for your patience and your continued kindness during these uncertain times.
