Magpas will continue to follow the latest Public Health and Government advice across our organisation.

As a result, the number of non-clinical staff in their offices has been reduced and they are promoting home working where appropriate.

All fundraising activities have been stopped, and as a charity, it relies solely on donations to continue to operate 24/7.

The current estimate is that the income over the coming months will be £200,000 lower than previously expected; an amount which would normally allow the service to respond to over 60 patients.
