The NHS is here for you
Part of the response to the coronavirus outbreak has been to reorganise our services to ensure we can continue to safely meet the needs of patients with non-coronavirus health needs as well as people with Coronavirus.

Our local response
The local NHS and its partners are continuing to respond to the Coronavirus situation. We are doing this through the Local Resilience Forum (LRF) for Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. The LRF is the multi-agency partnership made up of representatives from local public services including the emergency services, local authorities, the NHS and others.
