COVID-19 Insight: Issue 6

Published: 15 December 2020 Page last updated: 2 February 2021

In this month’s report, we share regional data on the designated settings that allow people with a COVID-positive test result to be discharged safely from hospital, and also the latest data on registered care home provision. We also look at how providers have collaborated to provide urgent and emergency care during the pandemic.

We want these insight reports to help everyone involved in health and social care to work together to learn from the pandemic. This includes:

  • sharing and reflecting on what has gone well
  • understanding and learning from the experience of what hasn't
  • helping health and care systems prepare better for the future.
