Our lives have changed profoundly due to Covid-19. These changes and the ongoing threat, not only to ourselves, but also to our loved ones and our communities, will continue to have an effect for the foreseeable future.

From health concerns, financial difficulties, changes to our routine, loneliness and uncertainty, comes struggle with how we feel in ourselves. During this time it is normal to experience problems with concentration, low mood, irritability, increased worry and sleep.

We have compiled a list of external websites and documents, to support our patients and staff during this difficult time.
