PHRN is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and has taken steps to mitigate the risk of transmission to our staff. In line with advice on social distancing, all staff at PHRN program office have moved to work from home. Staff are currently all working in line with our usual work patterns and our landline numbers are being diverted to staff at home, so will either be answered, or it will be possible to leave a voicemail. Please bear with us as we move to this new way of working. We will be participating in any meetings we need to attend remotely via Zoom. We are reviewing our work plans in light of the current situation and will make changes as required to ensure we are serving our network, researchers and community in this changing situation.
