CHUMS Coronavirus (COVID- 19) Update 19th March 2020

Following guidance from Public Health England and the Government, all face-to-face contacts with children, young people and families will cease from 5pm on Wednesday 18th March, for the foreseeable future to minimise exposure and unnecessary risk.

CHUMS will continue to operate and maintain our services and will endeavour to minimise any disruption to the care we provide.

We will now be offering our interventions using the following methods:

  • Telephone assessments
  • Individual interventions by phone, WhatsApp, Facetime or Skype
  • Group interventions using Microsoft Teams. 
  • Virtual drop-ins

Initial contact will be made by phone and the most convenient method of communication can then be decided. 

If you have an existing referral with CHUMS or you are about to make a new referral, we will contact you as soon as possible. 

If there is a change in circumstance or an escalation of your presenting issue that requires emergency attention, please contact your GP, call 111 or contact A&E. 

We can assure you that we are doing everything possible to continue to deliver a high standard of service and appreciate your patience during this challenging time. 

If you have any questions don’t hesitate to get in touch with our support team.

If you haven’t already, please take a look at our free Coronavirus Awareness video.
