Chief Medical Officer/Medical Director NHS Wales Advice to Residents

Published: 01/04/2020

A small proportion of Flintshire residents who have an existing health issue or care for someone who does will have received a letter from Dr Frank Atherton, Chief Medical Officer/Medical Director NHS Wales.

The letter provides important advice to keep these residents safe from coronavirus, and advises them that the best way to avoid getting coronavirus is to stay at home for the next 12 weeks. Residents have been advised they should not have any visitors apart from carers and healthcare workers.

We are supporting those residents who have received a letter and who do not have family, friends or neighbours who can help with important things like accessing food and medicine deliveries during this emergency.    Our workforce and volunteers from Flintshire Local Voluntary Council are providing essential support to these residents.

We recognise that some members of our community who have not received a letter may also require support at this time.  We encourage residents who are anxious to contact us on 01352 752121. Our team are very willing to discuss individual’s support needs and make arrangements to help vulnerable individuals.
