        Attendance by the public will be restricted to the numbers that can be accommodated safely taking the advice from Public Health England.

        The public will be encouraged to watch proceedings via webcast and those wanting to ask questions, present petitions or deputations will be advised the need to minimise attendance in person and offered the option of questions, petitions, deputations being taken as read, receiving written responses.

        Dear friend of Wellsbourne Healthcare

        We hope that you and your family and friends are all staying safe during the current outbreak.  This is just to let you know about what’s happening at Wellsbourne Healthcare now and in the coming weeks.

        Infection Control To keep visitors and staff as safe as possible, we are open during our normal hours but we are asking people not to come to the surgery in person.  Instead, people can contact us by phone on 01273 000544 for all enquiries, appointments and repeat prescriptions.  If we do ask you to come in person, we have made arrangements to keep everyone safely distanced.  The Broadway Surgery is doing the same.  Lloyds Pharmacy is also open.

        https://www.gov.uk/guidance/nhs-test-and-trace-how-it-works

        The app is free and simple to use. Once you’ve downloaded the app, Bluetooth technology on your phone will record the distance between other phones that also have the app installed. If you become unwell with symptoms of coronavirus, you can allow the app to inform the NHS. This will trigger a notification that the NHS will then send anonymously to all other app users who you’ve been in significant contact with over the previous few days. Affected app users will be sent official NHS advice on what to do next.

      • Whitehawk Foodbank has been given a grant by the Hendy Foundation

        Hendy Foundation has donated £333 to Whitehawk Foodbank which provides short term emergency provisions for those in Whitehawk and the wider East Brighton area

        Sean Avard, food bank manager said clients needing support has increased dramatically since the start of the pandemic.

        He said: “Before the pandemic we were providing food for around 50 people per week but this has risen to more than 220 adults and 150 children per week.
         
        "Each meal costs an average of £1.65 so the Hendy Foundation donation has provided 201 meals to those in need and we thank the foundation for thinking of us at this time."

        Hendy Foundation chair Rebecca Hendy said the trustees had pledged to help a number of foodbanks during the crisis.
