Some people with long-term complex health needs qualify for free social care arranged and funded solely by the NHS. This is known as NHS Continuing Healthcare.
Working to keep patients and staff safe during the COVID-19 pandemic
As you are aware, the Government has lifted all regulatory COVID guidelines from Monday 19 July. As an organisation we have considered how this may affect our vulnerable clients and staff who have patient facing/community based roles. For the time being staff will follow the guidance here.
Government guidance is no longer instructing people to work from home if they can. However, due to the increasing number of COVID-19 cases in North Yorkshire, the vulnerability of the people we are visiting and to ensure your safety, we are not currently planning to re-start face-to-face visits or assessments, other than in exceptional cases and when a patient is at risk.
The CCG will continue working virtually and review the situation in line with further Government advice, our partner organisations and the levels of COVID-19 cases locally.
