Guidance for care homes

The UK Government has guidance for social or community care and residential settings on COVID-19.

This page will be updates to include guidance on updates tailored for care homes, including advice on:

  • Supporting the management of COVID-19 cases in care homes
  • Staff and patient health and wellbeing
  • Infection control measures
  • Safeguarding

One of the most beneficial things care homes can do at this time is to sign up to NHSmail. This allows for the sharing of confidential information between health sector organisations and social care providers. Encourage care homes to join NHSmail.
