Local and national headlines
Message from Dr Liz Robin, Director of Public Health, Cambridgeshire County Council and Peterborough City Council.
We received the very sad news that four patients being cared for in our area by North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust have passed away.
One at Hinchingbrooke Hospital and three at Peterborough City Hospital. All patients were over the age of 70 and had pre-existing health conditions. They had all tested positive for COVID-19. Their families have been informed and our thoughts and condolences are with them at this difficult and distressing time.
All of our local NHS organisations are well prepared and have tried and tested measures for dealing with this type of outbreak. Please see press release for full detail.
Supporting Vulnerable Residents
The wheels are in motion internally to mobilise a community support effort with regards to reaching out to vulnerable people with food supplies and as much support information as possible. There are several thousand vulnerable people, as defined by the NHS, in the County and we are expecting at least a thousand to within our district. We are to be the recipient of large food delivery today, which is to be broken up and split amongst the vulnerable in our area, and alongside these deliveries, we will be supplying each vulnerable person with a newsletter containing vital advice on social distancing, self-care during isolation and local community and parish support networks.
A large network of staff are coordinating this response and will be ensuring that the vulnerable people in our district that are identified can be supported as best we can.

Online workouts and training sessions have been recorded by our instructors and have been made available to customers via the One Leisure YouTube channel.
