Support for Health and Care Workers

Content originally from Mid and South Essex Health and Care Partnership

The Mid and South Essex CCGs, working with the Essex Resilience Forum, have established a clear process to support allocation and distribution of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). This process distributes stock secured by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government for those organisations with an urgent need.

The CCGs have also developed a website for local health and care professionals with key information and resources to support communication during COVID-19, particularly around changes in local services. The website provides a central source for such information and has been developed with both clinical and non-clinical colleagues.

We are also promoting an online COVID-19 Resilience Hub created by MindEd to help front-line health and care workers. The content has been developed to be readily accessible by health staff on the move and optimised for mobile phones.  It includes tips that have been provided by over 50 international industry experts and while intended principally for NHS workers, the site is open to everyone.
