10. NHS support for care at home provision

Health and Social Care Partnerships, NHS providers and local community services and primary care, will be working with and supporting local authorities and care at home care providers in the provision of care. Many of the people who are receiving social care support will also have involvement of community health care teams. To minimise the numbers of health and social care staff visiting people who may be self-isolating or suspected/confirmed with COVID-19, it is important that health and social care teams communicate effectively so that care is planned and coordinated. Having a Shared Information Protocol can support the effective flow of communication between health and social care staff teams and minimise the risk of staff being unaware of the health status of individuals.
