COVID-19 PROGRAMMES

We’re supporting our partners in health and care to manage the regional response to COVID-19.

COVID-19 presents challenges for health and care teams across Somerset, Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly as they continue to deliver health and care services. During the pandemic we have supported and continue to support our partners to spread innovative practice, evaluate change, build capability, and share learning to improve patient safety, optimise digital-first care pathways, and tackle health inequalities to support vulnerable communities.
