Statement from Care England regarding COVID-19
Care England is doing its utmost to liaise with the Department of Health and Social Care, NHS England, NHS Digital and other national bodies to ensure that each and every one of your specific queries is answered. By continuing this regular engagement, we are trying to work with the national bodies in finding out what the sector needs. There is a lot of misinformation being circulated at present and we would recommend that you rely on DHSC guidance. Care England circulates all national guidance when it is issued in our daily Policy Alerts, exclusive to Care England members. Please do cascade this information to your staff as appropriate.
Please continue to send all COVID-19 related questions and concerns to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can continue to raise such questions with central government. The media is very interested in the impact of COVID-19 on care homes. Please be aware that you can pass any media queries to Care England email@example.com.
