An update from NHSE/I regarding the crisis in Ukraine


UKHSA guidance for primary care is now available here

As the scale of the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine continues, the NHS has been working with government to provide life-saving treatment to 21 children with cancer from the Ukraine at hospitals across the country.

Further planning for support as requested by government is underway, whether that is those who have had their treatment interrupted, have been injured or those who have become refugees. To be most effective for the people who need it, these support efforts must be properly co-ordinated, as part of the overall UK Government-led response.

As such, we ask that, rather than trying to contact Ukrainian or neighbouring authorities directly with offers of support, NHS organisations direct their contributions to England.incident14@nhs.net.

The government has published further information on how the public can help with support for Ukraine, which includes details of the Disasters Emergency Committee, a coalition of 15 leading UK charities, which has launched its collective appeal to provide emergency aid and rapid relief to civilians suffering during the conflict.
