COVID-19 Insight: Issue 7

Published: 20 January 2021 Page last updated: 2 February 2021

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.
