Trust statement - 10 April

A University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust spokesperson said:
"We understand there has been some concern about social distancing following a flashmob outside our hospitals last night (9 April).

"This initiative was organised by colleagues from health and emergency services in Bristol as a surprise to thank key workers for their efforts as part of 'clap for carers' which takes place on Thursday evenings.

"We appreciate the tremendous work being carried out by keyworkers across the country, and staff involved felt this was an opportunity to express that thanks.

"While colleagues took provisions to distance themselves outside the hospital, we acknowledge that the crowd of staff watching does not demonstrate the right message in light of social distancing and will remind those involved of observing these rules in future."
