Welsh NHS Confederation responds to latest COVID-19 advice

Darren Hughes

Responding to the statements today by the Prime Minister and Wales’ First Minister giving advice to people in order to delay the spread of Covid-19, Darren Hughes, Director of the Welsh NHS Confederation, said:

“It is crucial people in Wales continue to follow the latest advice given by both the UK and Welsh Governments. We understand this will be a very difficult period for people across Wales as well as the staff in the NHS as we all play our part in in delaying the spread of Covid-19 across the country.

“We must however continue to be led by the science and be cautious of some of the messages circulating on un-official social media accounts.  We will continue to work with our Member’s across the NHS in Wales to ensure that preparations for dealing with COVID-19 are planned, co-ordinated and proportionate.

“Frontline staff are prepared and determined to do all they can to help those with complications arising from COVID-19 and we would once again like to thank them all for their dedication.”

“We would like to reiterate the words of the First Minister. If you have a cough or a temperature please stay at home and if anyone within your household displays any of these symptoms the whole household should stay at home for a period of 14 days.  Please check the Public Health Wales website for the latest advice and what you should do to keep you and your family safe.
