COVID-19: A message to all our colleagues, from The Health Policy Partnership

26 March 2020

Dear colleagues,

We want to reassure you that The Health Policy Partnership (HPP) will continue to operate at full capacity over the coming weeks and months, with all team members working remotely. In line with UK Government guidance, we have closed our office in London and ceased all work-related travel until directed otherwise.

During this time, we are as committed as ever to ensuring that we deliver exceptional work to our clients and partners. All members of the HPP team can be reached via email, and our main office telephone number is redirecting to our Operations Manager. We are conducting all meetings virtually and our upcoming project launches will be online-only.

HPP stands in full support of public health measures to reduce the impact of COVID-19 on our societies and health systems. We are doing everything we can to support our team and their households to observe social distancing and manage the many disruptions to family and working life.

These are unprecedented times, with health systems across the world being put under immense pressure. Here at HPP, as we continue our work on projects aiming to improve the lives of people living with chronic conditions and infectious diseases, our thoughts are never far from our professional colleagues working directly with patients. We have immeasurable admiration for how they are helping to adapt our healthcare systems to the demands of COVID-19.

One of the most gratifying parts of our work is getting to know the exceptional colleagues we come across through our projects. We would like to express our wholehearted support and gratitude to all those colleagues, with particular thought to the healthcare professionals, researchers and others who are working tirelessly to combat this pandemic and save people’s lives.

Thank you, take care, stay safe, and we look forward to seeing you hopefully in the not-too-distant future.

– The HPP Team
