We know we speak on behalf of the whole NHS and all of Pennine Care when we say how incredibly saddened we are to hear of the death of Her Majesty The Queen.

Our heartfelt condolences are with the Royal Family at this time, and to everyone to whom this news will cause immense sadness.

For more than 70 years, the Queen has provided leadership, guidance and inspiration to people in the UK, the Commonwealth and worldwide.

We know that many of us will feel great sadness today. Please do look out for one another over the coming days and reach out to local support services if you're struggling with your mental health, including our 24/7 mental health helpline.

Honouring the Queen’s memory will continue to inspire us all.

Led by the Royal Household and the Cabinet Office, the UK will begin a period of national mourning for 10 days. We are pausing most proactive communications but will continue with all essential operational and patient communications.
