3 teams from @CGGSNews competed in the ESSA cross-country running finals in Newquay today. Very tough conditions with gales and hail but the junior, inter- and senior boys all showed great determination. They finished 17th, 10th and 5th teams respectively. @CGGSSport Well done!

2020 was a tough year but turns out 2021 was a lot harder. Trying to catch up on all the work. Early 2021 was the worst with lots of sick patients being treated outside ICU. Since June we have 1/5th ICU beds full of COVID patients. This has put pressure on our overall capacity

and we have needed to transfer sick patients from one unit to the other to make room for other patients. Staff have been hit hard by the workload & often we don't have enough of them to keep beds open. Need to find better ways to support staff as we go through the winter months.

We're not sure how Omicron will behave - if it spreads more easily than previous versions of the virus, or if it causes the same severity of disease. But it is almost certain that COVID vaccines will prevent serious disease more than no vaccination. Important to get vaccinated.

Beautiful sunrise on Moel Famau this morning. Did my longest run today before the Tour de Helvellyn in mid-December. Hope it will be a little warmer than today.. ❄️❄️

Not sure why this simple, cheap intervention was dropped in the first place.
Boris Johnson has announced that mask wearing is mandatory again in England on public transport and in shops. Our survey a month ago found 76-81% of English people supported such a move yougov.co.uk/topics/politics…

The data from the latest @ICNARC report on #Covid admissions to ICUs on vaccination status of admissions shows that 3/4 of people admitted had not received any vaccines. We don't know yet how #Omicron will behave but it's still important to get vaxxed/boosted #COVIDVaccination

Five quick tweets on the new variant B.1.1.529 Caveat first: data here is *very* preliminary, so everything could change. Nonetheless, better safe than sorry. 1) Based on the data we have, this variant is out-competing others *far* faster than Beta and even Delta did 🚩🚩

93k NHS staff vacancies. £6bn spend on temporary staff to fill gaps. 55% of staff working unpaid extra hours each week. 44% saying they've felt ill with work related stress. NHS desperately needs long term workforce planning. Govt must make this happen this week. R/T if you agree

Since Sunday’s terror attacked in Liverpool the Home Secretary has not bothered to hold a press conference, she didn’t bother to come to Parliament to answer questions on the events But she did find time to brief journalists & use this event to push her hardline agenda
