Message from the Chief Executive 31 January 2020
You will be aware that we are caring for patients with Coronavirus in our Specialist Infectious Disease Unit.
I have been to visit our unit this afternoon and seen for myself the exceptionally high levels of skill and expertise on offer. We are extremely well prepared for managing infections and I know that these patients are receiving the very best care, following the most up-to-date clinical advice.
This is business as usual for us here at Newcastle.
There has, inevitably, been media interest and we are managing that closely.
Our priority, as always, is to ensure that all of our patients are well cared for and to not let this get in the way of our usual high standards,
Please remain calm, and continue to support our patients across all of our services, in the way that you do so well.
With best wishes
Dame Jackie Daniel
