PICS joins with the many who mourn the death of Her Majesty the Queen and offer our condolences to the Royal Family, and our compassion and care to our communities.
Public services are expected to continue in times of national mourning, therefore PICS will continue with our duties as scheduled including appointments, clinics and meetings. PICS will follow bank holiday Monday arrangements guidance issued by the NHS.
A Book of Condolence has been opened at our Headquarters.
Buckingham Palace have provided an online Book of Condolence: royal.uk/send-message-condolence.
Alison Sutherland, Clinical Services Lead for PICS and pictured here at Buckingham Palace earlier this year, shares her reflections on the Queen’s death and legacy:
“Her Majesty had the highest regard for the NHS and we felt honoured when Queen Elizabeth II awarded The George Cross to the NHS for courage, compassion and dedication. Many PICS staff also have personal memories of Her Majesty from their shared commitment to public service during the decades of her reign. While PICS was only formed eight years ago, we take pride in our participation during recent Jubilee celebrations and our support of her beloved Armed Forces.”
PICS was proud to be invited by the Queen’s representative to the Notts County Show and take part in the celebration of Health and Social Care Exhibition.
PICS signed the Armed Forces Covenant on 30 March 2022 and was accredited with a Bronze Award in the Employer Recognition Scheme.
