Services during severe weather
Our priority is to continue to run our Health & Social Care services as usual during severe weather. However, sometimes because of difficulties and risk associated with travel or damage to offices caused by severe weather, our teams have the option to work out of different offices or from home. In cases of severe weather disruption, a priority service will be put into action where those most at risk of harm or who pose a risk to others will be seen first. Below are some frequently asked questions that may help you.
