THE DGH is ‘committed to treating non Covid patients needing elective and emergency care’ as we go into Lockdown 2.

Joe Chadwick-Bell, Chief Executive of the Trust, made the comments after meeting MP, Sally-Ann Hart.

Joe Chadwick-Bell said: “She was keen to hear about our plans for this winter and I was able to explain to her about our commitment to continue to treat non Covid patients who need elective and emergency care as well as those patients requiring treatment for Covid.

It was also an opportunity to highlight the measures we have in place to keep everyone safe this winter.

“I know she was particularly impressed with the dedication and commitment of everyone to provide high quality care to our patients.”
