We are living in exceptional times, with the greatest challenge to our healthcare system and way of life that we have seen in our lifetimes. Healthcare advice has been published at many different levels, e.g. local trusts, royal colleges, PHE and gov.uk - we don’t wish to repeat that, but to provide some information from a specialist rehabilitation perspective and provide a few easy links to advice.  We aim to keep this information updated and details of any further useful information to share with our community is most welcome.
