Visiting care homes during COVID-19

Department of Health and Social Care

Guidance for making arrangements for limited visits to care homes, aimed at care providers and directors of public health. Visiting policies and decisions must aim to minimise the risk of coronavirus (COVID-19) transmission wherever possible, taking into account the circumstances of the individual care home (for example, its employee availability, resident demographics and outbreak status); and its local circumstances (local epidemiological risk, presence of outbreaks in the community). The guide sets out the principles of a local approach to visiting arrangements and dynamic risk assessment; guidance for providers establishing their visiting policy; guidance for providers taking decisions on visiting for particular residents or groups of residents; infection control precautions; communicating with relatives and others about the visiting policy and visiting decisions.

Levelling up Yorkshire and Humber: health as the new wealth post-COVID

NHS Confederation

This report provides a plan to tackle ever-increasing socio-economic inequalities and boost health outcomes in Yorkshire and the Humber by encouraging and supporting more cross-sector working. Leaders and clinicians across the NHS and social care have called for a ‘reset’ to the way health and care are planned, commissioned and delivered, building on the rapid progress already made during the COVID-19 pandemic. The paper argues that the recovery approach must recognise that health and the economy are bound tightly together. Interventions designed to improve health, inclusive growth and wellbeing are in the interests of all local, regional and national partners, businesses and communities and should be a shared priority and endeavour. Businesses and anchor institutions must adopt a stronger health-led and inclusive economic growth agenda, bolstered by increased ‘place-sensitive’ policy and strategy from government and national agencies. There is a role for place-based partnerships across the region – including Integrated Care Systems, Local Enterprise Partnerships and Combined Authorities – to help unlock even more local potential and achieve improved health and inclusive growth for Yorkshire and the Humber.

Department for Education

This consultation seeks views on proposed changes to the Adoption and Children (Coronavirus) (Amendment) Regulations 2020.

The subsequent parts of the document set out the regulations that would need to lapse and detail on those that should be extended. The consultation closes on 5 August 2020.
