Mental Health, Learning Disabilities and Autism COVID19 FutureNHS collaboration workspace

NHS England and NHS Improvement has set up a FutureNHS collaboration platform workspace to support the work of its COVID-19 Mental Health, Learning Disabilities and Autism Response Cell. We will use this page to share information, advice and feedback on how best to look after our patients and staff during these difficult times.

The resources on this workspace are open to those working in mental health, learning disabilities and autism services and will include the voluntary and independent sector. The page is being updated daily with new information and we encourage colleagues to join the workspace, to check it regularly and to start discussions and respond to each other’s questions.

Access to this workspace can be gained directly through the homepage if you currently have a FutureNHS account. Those without a FutureNHS account can either self-register to the platform if they have an or email account, or directly request access by emailing the workspace manager if they are from other organisations (

Information on medication, including oxygen, can be found on the COVID-19 medicines workspace.
