Addressing false rumours

We have been asked to comment on false rumours that have been circulating on social media, particularly one message that falsely claims to be authored by one of our medical colleagues.

It is important to stress that, contrary to some allegations, we have not turned patients away from our hospitals, and we have not denied patients key treatment.

Indeed, we are proud of how our amazing staff are working hard to keep patients safe.
