Since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust has seen a significant reduction in ‘non-Covid-19’ urgent and emergency attendances – in our heart attack centre and hyper acute stroke unit as well as our A&E departments. We’re also getting direct feedback, especially from our Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) communities – of concerns about the safety of our hospitals in light of Covid-19.
We’ve put together a short video to highlight the developments and changes we’ve made across our hospitals to ensure safe and high quality care for everyone. We’ve had a really positive response to the video from community stakeholders and we would be very grateful if you could help share it more widely. We’re working on translations into a number of other languages as well as a further video that responds directly to the myths about care for patients from BAME backgrounds that are circulating. We will share these as soon as they are ready.
