2021 Annual Information Day

 

Due to the continued risk from the Coronavirus pandemic, the 2021 Annual Patient Information Day has been moved from May to October.  We hope that, by the autumn, almost everyone will have been vaccinated against the virus, and that events such as this will be safer for all.

We may hold some virtual information events in May, depending upon the availability of our health professional volunteers (many of whom are currently working on covid-19 wards).

Please check this page and our social media channels regularly for updates.
