Additionally, thank you to all of you who submitted in your responses regarding the survey. I am still taking submission so if you wish to update us on your institution's policy and practice during these strange times please don't hesitate to contact me.

We are wanting to provide weekly/ fortnightly updates during the lockdown so please let us know of any webinars, online resources and any change of policy / practice that may occur in your institution.

Finally, I want to wish everyone a Happy Easter, I know that it will be strange and muted for many, if not all of us, but as I tell my nieces daily, lets just 'stay safe and (try) to stay sane.'

Kindest regards,
