Reduced services due to Covid-19
Together with the rest of the NHS, Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust is preparing for the unprecedented demands of the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak. During this time, your care may change a little, for example it may be delivered in a different way, or may have to be postponed for a while. We will try to explain why we have to take these steps below.
As a result of the outbreak, we are prioritising the care we normally provide, and some services will be restricted or closed. We will be writing to patients who are affected. If you were expecting to attend one of our clinics in the next few days and have not received a letter, please phone the number provided on your original appointment letter to confirm whether you should still attend.

Current languages that this service can support are Urdu, Punjabi and Gujarati. The cultural link worker accompanies any of the health professionals involved in home visits, hospital appointments and meetings, helping families to open up and voice their concerns. This in turn helps professionals to provide care that is appropriate and culturally sensitive.
Our cultural link worker provides training sessions for colleagues and other professionals on cultural and religious issues.
Children and young people up to 18 years old.
