Monday, 7 September 2020Charities, as well as the Labour Party have called on ministers to take urgent action to help increase the number of visits for care homes in England. Helen Wildbore, the director of the Relatives and Residents Association, said "We need a better balance between protecting people from the virus and protecting their wellbeing and thinking about what makes a good life. People don’t just want to survive, they want to live.” Liz Kendall, the shadow social care minister, said the government should introduce more testing and protective equipment, while a charity that represents care residents and their families called for a wider re-evaluation of visiting rules to take into account the impact of separation from loved ones.A Department of Health and Social Care spokeswoman said: “We realise this is a very difficult time for families and care home residents who want to see their loved ones. Our first priority must be to protect residents and staff by ensuring visits are carried out safely to prevent outbreaks. Nadra Ahmed, the chair of National Care Association, said "While a system of proper, consistent, sustainable testing would help, in the longer term one solution could be the government’s proposal for mass tests with results in as little as 20 minutes, which could be used for visitors as well as staff and residents."
Friday, 14 August 2020New research suggests that care home residents should be tested even if they are feeling generally unwell, as those with coronavirus may be asymptomatic or not display typical symptoms. According to the study by the University of East Anglia (UEA) and North Norfolk Primary Care, supported by UEA Health and Social Care Partners, in many cases symptoms were not typical and did not include a high temperature, cough or loss of smell. Instead, residents who tested positive for Covid-19 often presented as generally unwell, researchers say in the study which has not yet been peer-reviewed.
Thursday, 9 July 2020Plans to adequately fund the social care sector need to be in place within a year, the head of NHS England has said.Speaking on the BBC's Andrew Marr programme, Sir Simon said the Covid-19 pandemic should be used to give momentum to plans to overhaul how the system works. He said the Covid-19 crisis had shone a "very harsh spotlight" on the "resilience" of the care system. That we need to "decisively answer" how high quality care could be provided long-term. "If any good is to come from this, we must use this as a moment to resolve once and for all to actually properly resource and reform the way in which social care works in this country," he said. "The reality is that after at least two decades of talking about it, we do not have a fair and properly resourced adult social care system with a proper set of workforce supports."
