Since the start of the virus outbreak, the council has worked closely with its NHS partners, provider market and wider community. Our priority is to ensure that care home providers are supported during the COVID-19 pandemic.
On 14 May councils were asked to complete a care home resilience plan to central government. The aim of this process is to establish a clear understanding of the level of implementation in every care home, and to identify any issues in local areas and further support needs. This includes information provided to us directly from local care homes we are working with.
