10 Leaps forward - Innovation in the Pandemic
WHAT WE WANT TO KEEP FROM THIS EXPERIENCE - GOING ‘BACK TO BETTER’
London South Bank University’s Health Systems Innovation Lab has been exploring innovation in the Pandemic. A number of changes to the health and care system have been identified. The team has reported that almost overnight, in some places, the NHS became a high performing health system for people with Covid-19 and that the NHS needs support to hold on to this progress and to use it to proactively shape the NHS from here on. LSBU has:
- Undertaken a survey of NHS staff asking: "What do you want to keep and what should never be repeated".
- Inquired through a series of Communities of Practice with NHS leaders on how to embed proactive leadership.
- Prof Malby has been interviewing international leaders on the challenge facing health systems.

Shielding vulnerable patients from Covid-19
RCGP e-learning resource
Advice on Covid-19 is changing day by day. A significant change was the recommendation that a group of high-risk patients should begin to shield. This means not leaving the house for any reason for a period of 12 weeks.
In this short module we identify this group and discuss the differences between shielding and social isolation, as well as the actions that GPs need to take now to identify this group, and inform those patients who have been wrongly told to shield. The resources and references page gives links to relevant public health and NHSE sites as well as information to help identify which patients on immunosuppressants should shield.
This resource was developed by RCGP Learning.
