“During this Covid-19 pandemic, we’ve all heard the message to stay at home as much as possible and it’s great that people are doing this. GPs are still here for you though and it is important that you contact your surgery for advice or to make an appointment when you need to.
Staff at King’s College Hospital have been kind enough to share their experience.
The impact of COVID-19 is far-reaching and despite its continuous challenges, team King’s is adapting and responding incredibly. They have been sharing a range of staff stories from across King’s and highlighting how various individuals, teams and services are managing this complex and evolving situation.
As an increasing number of staff need to self-isolate, care for family or become unwell, we need to focus on the people who most urgently need our care and support for their mental health.
This message sets out Lambeth’s adult mental health Alliance response to the current situation.
A public consultation on proposals to improve inpatient mental health services for adults in Lambeth Hospital was launched on 4 March.
The consultation, which is led by NHS Lambeth Clinical Commissioning Group (NHS Lambeth CCG) and supported by South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (the Trust), is seeking views on a proposal to move adult inpatient mental health services from Lambeth Hospital, in Landor Road to new, modern and high quality facilities on the Maudsley Hospital site, at Denmark Hill.
