(Monday 25 May 2020)

Over the 25 May bank holiday weekend LPT will be providing the level of cover normally available on a bank holiday and weekend with some additional capacity as part of our overall COVID response. These arrangements reflect those in place for the Easter Bank Holiday weekend.

All services will operate in line with arrangements to support social distancing; this means some services will operate via non-face to face contacts where this is safe to provide the intervention required. Face to face contact will be undertaken where clinically indicated post-triage. This is to keep both service users and staff safe.
