A message from Dr Sherry Kothari, Director of the Health Innovation Campus
We are in unprecedented times and, like organisations across the country and beyond, we are adapting the way we work in response to COVID-19. We take our responsibilities to our staff, students and stakeholders extremely seriously and recognise that the rapidly evolving situation necessitates flexibility and adaptability. We also recognise that all of you will be getting to grips with this ‘new reality’ and are busy putting new working practices and procedures in place at the same time as focussing on supporting your colleagues. We remain committed to supporting private, public and third sector organisations across the region, the country and beyond.
The vast majority of our staff are working from home in line with Government guidance, with many operations moved online. Nonetheless, we are open for business and our teams remain contactable during the days and weeks ahead. Please do not hesitate to contact our staff directly as usual, or email our Health Innovation team.
Over the coming weeks we will seek to provide support for private, public and third sector organisations during this challenging time and will be posting updates on our website as well as through our social media channels.
We are mindful of the impact that this global crisis is having on you, your families and your friends. I would like to extend my very best wishes to all of you on behalf of the Health Innovation Campus team.
We’re working with small businesses, social enterprises, and charities in Lancashire to re-imagine health and wellbeing solutions for the future. Find out about ways we can help your organisation to innovate, develop and grow.Learn more
