Supporting people through uncertain times | from Bay Health and Care Partnership, Morecambe
As COVID-19 continues and other health services start to resume, patients and the general partners may be anxious about coming into hospital or unsure what to do when they are unwell.
To help reassure and inform the general public, Bay Health and Care Partners launched a social media campaign called #AskThePro.
#AskThePro gives the public the opportunity to ask questions about the BHCP response to COVID-19 and how their services have been affected as a result. There are three ways questions can be submitted to the organisation:
- BHCP Twitter account (@MorecambeBHCP)
- University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust Twitter account (@UHMBT)
- Facebook page (@UHMBT)
Questions will then be responded to by signposting to the relevant information, or through a short video message from a BHCP colleague.
The aim of the campaign is to help give people clarity around common questions and concerns people may have about visiting local hospitals or accessing community care.
Dr Arun Thimmiah, a GP at Alfred Barrow Health Centre in Barrow-in-Furness, said:
"During these uncertain times, we want everyone across the Morecambe Bay community to be able to ask any questions they have about their local health and care services and know that the information they are receiving is reliable."
