COVID-19 Insight: Issue 3

In this month’s report, we explore further the need for providers and other organisations to collaborate to tackle COVID-19. We look at what concerns have prompted us to carry out a number of inspections in recent months, and at the challenges that providers have faced in caring for people detained under the Mental Health Act or subject to a deprivation of liberty.

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

IR(ME)R annual report

This report looks at our work under the Ionising Radiation (Medical Exposure) Regulations 2017.

It provides a breakdown of the number and type of notifications we received about IR(ME)R incidents, and findings from our inspections. We also share learning from examples of errors and the actions that providers took to improve.

State of Care

State of Care is our annual assessment of health and social care in England. The report looks at the trends, highlights examples of good and outstanding care, and identifies factors that maintain high-quality care.
