Resources for patient-facing communications

As you know, this is a rapidly changing situation but we understand how important it is to keep your staff and patients updated. It’s important to only use nationally approved messages on all practice communications channels, including websites, social media accounts, text messages and posters. All communication resources are based on the most recently available medical, scientific and behavioural insight advice and have been signed off by NHS England / Improvement and Public Health England.
