The Trustees held a Zoom meeting on 31 December and after long discussion, reluctantly agreed that in the light of the current situation, with fast increasing numbers of people testing positive for Covid-19 and the NHS being put under extreme pressure locally, it was in the best interests of both members and staff to delay reopening the Centre for all treatments until at least Monday 18 January 2021.
The staff are in the process of phoning all members who were due to come in for treatment so that we’re absolutely sure that no-one will have a wasted journey.
Obviously, this was a really difficult decision because we know how much those of you who have been coming to the Centre were pleased to be back and receiving treatment, and we hope that by 18 January the situation will be clearer. However, the main priority is, and always will be, the safety of our members and staff.
Hopefully the vaccination programme will be advanced and we can all look forward to an improving picture for 2021. Meanwhile, please bear with us and we will keep in touch with you all.
In the meantime, if you would like to speak to Lynn, Sam or Apeksha please ring the Centre and leave a message on the answerphone. Staff are going into the Centre every couple of days to check that everything is OK and will phone you back.
Wishing everybody a healthy and safe 2021.
