We have been humbled by the many kind offers of support for our staff during this particularly demanding time.
While we appreciate everyone's kind thoughts and actions, we need to ensure that members of the public do not visit our hospital sites unnecessarily.
This is to protect their own health, reduce the risk to our staff and patients, and to encourage everyone to follow the Government's advice. Our staff are also focused on the response to COVID-19 and do not have the capacity to manage lots of ad-hoc donations.
If members of the public do want to help, they can contribute towards our Support Our Staff appeal by clicking here.
These funds will allow us to purchase key items that our staff will need to support their welfare during this period.
Any businesses who wish to help or donate goods/services can email our support for staff team at firstname.lastname@example.org
We have had a number of generous offers of accommodation. We have implemented a local accommodation plan for our staff in partnership with the Liverpool Hoteliers Association and the University of Liverpool. At the moment we have sufficient accommodation for staff requiring this support.
Our local food bank partners are still welcoming donations to help the most needy in our communities.
For those who want to donate food or toiletries, we ask that you support local food banks and do not bring anything to our hospitals.
Food banks can best be supported through local supermarkets – you can drop items off in collection bins while you're doing essential shopping. This will reduce any unnecessary travel.
