Our advice for clinicians on the coronavirus is here.
If you are a member of the public looking for health advice, go to the NHS website. And if you are looking for the latest travel information, and advice about the government response to the outbreak, go to the GOV.UK website.
The NHS Commissioning Board Authority has published interim advice on arrangements to secure children’s and adult safeguarding, which provides additional information, in particular, to emerging clinical commissioning groups. A covering letter reminds PCTs and SHAs of the vital importance of maintaining appropriate arrangements as the health system goes through transition.
The interim advice, with a covering letter from Jane Cummings and Shaun Gallagher (Acting Director General, Social Care, Local Government and Care Partnerships), is on the safeguarding web page.
NHS chief executives will wish to consider the implications of this interim advice.
