Care Homes

The challenge of COVID-19 goes far beyond anything we have previously experienced with in the health and care sector and as a wider UK community. Older people and/or those living with long term conditions are at a far greater risk from this virus. We need to have strategies and guidance to help us protect and preserve life for all people living within or supported by the care sector.

We are working with local government partners and the social care leaders across North East London. These health and care professionals are providing essential local leadership and oversight to our communities.

This website is designed to be a single point of information on the issues facing care homes and other providers of care services. Here you will find the latest guidance on key issues including testing, PPE, medication and more. This website will be updated regularly to ensure accuracy and relevance as the pandemic response continues and changes.

We are also hosting a YouTube webinar every Thursday afternoon at 2:00 pm. In this webinar we provide information and advice to care providers on how to respond to the Covid-19 pandemic and how best to protect their staff, residents, patients and visitors.

We would also like to acknowledge the work done by care providers, staff and health and care services across North East London. Thank you for your dedication and service to the people in our community.
