COVID-19 Update February 12, 2021
The ESHCRU team in York and at the LSE continue to work from home due to COVID19 and will do so for the foreseeable future.
Many are working flexibly to accommodate additional childcare responsibilities. We are fortunate that much of our work is desk-based and relies on remote access to secure datasets. We are therefore progressing our core work as much as possible but also responding to COVID19-related requests from the Department of Health and Social Care.
If you’d like to get in touch with us, please email Louise Campbell on firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
