Tracy Dowling, chief executive of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust, said: "In the current climate we’ve had to adapt our services and are already offering video consultations rather than face-to-face appointments where appropriate.

"We have also increased the support in our crisis services to ensure people who need urgent help can access it quickly.”
