Preparing for winter challenges

In anticipation of a challenging winter for the NHS and social care services, we have announced additional measures to boost capacity, support staff and better care for patients at home.

Our winter resilience plans include introducing extra hospital beds, more 111 and 999 call handlers, rapid response teams for home falls and 24/7 “healthcare traffic control centres” to oversee services across each area.
