A health trust has publicly thanked schools and organisations for making protective visors for staff on the coronavirus frontline.
Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust (CPFT) provides community healthcare for the elderly and those with long-term conditions, mental health services as well as disability and social care support.
The organisations that produced the visors include Hinchingbrooke School in Huntingdon, King’s School in Ely and Longsands Academy in St Neots.
Vicky Thompson, Head of Nursing and Quality for the Trust’s Older People and Adult Community Directorate, said: “The response of our frontline clinical teams has been exceptional during the COVID-19 pandemic – and so has the generosity and support of the public.
“At CPFT we have physical health and mental health in-patient wards, and community physical health and mental health teams team treating people in their own homes.
