COVID-19 Insight: Issue 7

In this month’s report, we share further data on the designated settings scheme for adult social care, and also look into more detail on data on deaths from COVID-19. 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.
