Service changes and visiting during the COVID-19 pandemic
During this COVID-19 pandemic there may be changes in the way some of our services work. Contact the service directly to check how services are being delivered and follow their advice.
Some of our services now offer video consultations. You should speak to your clinician if this is something you would like them to consider. You can find out more about video consultation here.
Contact the ward you wish to visit in advance for guidance and instructions for a safe visit.

Campaigns and projects
There are a number of initiatives in the Trust to make sure our patients have the best experience possible with our services. You can find out more about these in the pages on the left.
Recap Health at Nottinghamshire Healthcare
Recap is a digital platform which enables health and social care workers working within the Trust to send digital information for health, wellbeing and recovery.
The aim is to provide trusted, relevant information and activities that you can access through smart phones, tablets and computers. This can be used in between sessions, giving you more control and responsibility for your own health and wellbeing.
The types of information that can be sent to you by your healthcare professional may include electronic leaflets, films, website links, apps and more.
You can register for Recap Health if you are a patient, a carer or a professional supporter (e.g. school/care home staff) connected to Nottinghamshire Healthcare. If you let us know who or what service team you are working with at firstname.lastname@example.org we will send you an invitation to register for an account.
We are committed to making sure that everyone can get information about their health, and express their views and needs, whatever their communications needs.
We have created the resources below to explain more about how we do this, and to provide some helpful tools. We have also created a video showing what a difference accessible communication can make to our service user and patients.
