08 Feb 2021

As the world continues to wrestle with the Coronavirus, there is renewed hope as the mass vaccination programme gets underway across the UK.

But, as we know, the availability of the vaccine gives rise to a new set of challenges, particularly for those operating in the care sector and in particular, visitation rules for family members.
