UKAT rehab centres will remain open during lockdown (November update)
This Page was last reviewed and changed on November 3rd, 2020
When rumours of a lockdown first appeared back in March, UKAT pulled together a strategy to ensure the safety of patients and staff by closely monitoring the pandemic and increasing our safety procedures accordingly. These measures, which include PCR (antigen) Coronavirus tests and private shielding rooms, have prepared us for any setbacks caused by COVID-19, and we have continued to support people through their recovery safely.
Reports of a second quarantine period announced by the government on 1 November may have sent concern across the country, but our doors remain firmly open. All of UKAT’s clinics will stay open as usual during this latest lockdown, which will last from 5 November until 2 December.
Your welfare remains our priority, and our staff will work diligently to ensure that help for addiction is always available during this uncertain time. Remember, lockdown rules do not apply if you need medical attention, so if you suffer from addiction or know someone who does, please don’t hesitate to reach out for support.
A Few Words From…
Nuno Albuquerque, Treatment Lead
The current Coronavirus crisis is without a doubt a frightening time for everyone, especially for those suffering with addiction who are in need of critical care and immediate treatment. This is why we are going to every length possible in order to remain open and to provide the same standard of care, trust, love and support deserved to everyone with addiction. Addiction won’t pause during the Coronavirus crisis, and neither will we.
