Good Morning All,

I hope that you have all enjoyed the lovely, sunny weekend

I am Duty Manager this week. My phone number is 07469 152722 both for calls or texts if you have any queries, concerns or issues.

Please text if you are undertaking a home visit on your own and let me know:

  • Time of visit and time you will be leaving.

  • Carer name and number

Please Text me when you are :

  • In and Out from an evening group

  • At the end of a Hospital shift once you are out of the building and in your car.

Do not email me as these are unlikely to be picked up immediately.

If you are working on the late Wednesday SPOC shift or Saturday Morning shift, please make sure you are aware of who your colleagues are. If you are on together in a building, please try to go into start your shift, and leave the shift together. For Saturday Morning SPOC and Hospital shifts, please text when you arrive and as you leave.

Please also be aware that if you are the first person, or indeed the last person, in any one of our offices text the Duty Manager in accordance with our Lone Working Policy.

Many thanks
