A message from the leaders of Nottingham and Nottinghamshire ICS

The ICS system chief executives have put a message together for all staff across the health and care system

We are writing in acknowledgement of the extraordinary pressures that you are facing within your service at the moment. We are seeing significant demand across all areas, compounded by staff absence and the long-standing nature of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We wanted to take this opportunity to thank you again for your professionalism and service to our communities.

We are seeing substantial pressure in all areas of our health and care system – including community services, general practice, hospitals, emergency departments / urgent care, social care, 111, voluntary sector, ambulance and transport services. We ask you to be mindful of colleagues from other parts of our NHS and social care system, who are also working in challenging times.

Please look after yourselves and others and please be kind to each other.

Thank you again
