Readiness for increase in hospital admissions for COVID-19

Keith Willett, strategic incident director for COVID-19 and Pauline Philip, national director for emergency and elective care have written to STP and ICS leaders acknowledging and thanking colleagues for the work in developing plans for the third phase of the NHS response to COVID-19.

The letter acknowledged that regions have been working with systems on preparedness for a potential second wave of COVID-19 and asked systems to set out their plans in the event of a further peak of COVID demand and the impact this may have on restoration of non-COVID health services.
