In Mind: Chief Executive Joe Rafferty talks about COVID-19, health and social care, operational plan and clinical strategy and more

29 March 2021
You’ll all be aware that last weekend marked the changing of the clocks and the countdown towards better weather ahead, or so we’d like. We’ve also marked the year since lockdown began and paid our respects to those who died or have been affected by the pandemic. The clocks have changed and restrictions have eased ever so slightly, but the way we work hasn’t so, as always, it’s important to remain vigilant. We don’t yet fully understand all the effects of COVID-19, on mind and body, directly and indirectly, but we’re learning to live in a world with the virus. Vaccination gives us the opportunity to see it as a disease that can be more readily managed in the community. Our take up of the vaccine as a Trust has been good and is now available to all of our staff. If everyone has it, we can see a way through to looking at what we can do next, to make things better.
