Our thoughts are with everyone as we enter the Christmas period and we want acknowledge that 2020 has been especially difficult for us all, particularly those who have been bereaved. We want to thank our staff and their families for all they have done and continue to do. We hope that it has meant that we have been there when we’ve been needed by our community. We recognise the pandemic has had a hugely detrimental and significant impact on people’s mental health and to try to further help in some small way we have decided to donate to the MIND charity this year in lieu of Christmas cards. If you are experiencing a bereavement at this time we have some links and resources to help you. As always we are here for you through the Christmas period and will continue to provide our upmost care and attention, professionalism and transparency during this time of uncertainty.
