DEMO: Health & Care services for you - post COVID-19

We are going to see increased demand for Covid-19 aftercare and support in community health services, primary care, and mental health.

Community health services will need to support the increase in patients who have recovered from Covid-19 and who having been discharged from hospital need ongoing health support. General practice will need to continue to stratify and proactively contact their high-risk patients with ongoing care needs, including those in the ‘shielding’ cohort to ensure they are accessing needed care and are receiving their medications.

We want to take this opportunity to ‘lock in’ beneficial changes that we’ve collectively brought about in recent weeks. This includes backing local initiative and flexibility; enhanced local system working; strong clinical leadership; flexible and remote working where appropriate; and rapid scaling of new technology-enabled service delivery options such as digital consultations.


Join our virtual town hall meeting and ask questions live

SCW will be going live on 24 December 2020 - join us here to find out about new initiatives in the digital space in the NHS and whare your views on life after Covid-19, the patient's perspective. Our Directors will be taking questions live from the audience and look forward to exploring this topic with you.



You can also take part in our live poll during the event.


Tell us what you think!

We want to to hear from our staff and our communities to understand what we should keep, what we should tailor and what perhaps has not been so good.

This space has been set up to explore some of those opportunities:

Berkshire West CCG - Covid-19 Support and Primary Care Networks

4 months

The map shows the boundaries of the new Primary Care Networks (PCNs) in the Berkshire West CCG boundary.  The red dots are the individual GP practices.  As we move to support more families and individuals in the community, we need to understand better what support, both statutory and informal exists that people use in addition to their GP practice, so that PCNs can signpost patients to useful resources.

Can you add onto the map any of the following that have been providing useful support to patients/your community during the COVID-19 Pandemic?

These could be:
