Dealing with Royal Mail post during COVID-19 outbreak

Please be aware that due to the COVID-19 outbreak, our staff are following government guidance to work from home.

If you have recently sent any urgent correspondence by Royal Mail to the CCG, please re-send this to us by email where possible to:
