Learning from the pandemic will be key to supporting transformation in times to come
Monday 14th September 2020
South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Integrated Care System (ICS) have been supporting a vital new rapid insights project to gather learning outcomes as a result of regional Covid-19 recovery plans.
Sir Andrew Cash (ICS System Lead) and Aejaz Zahid (Programme Director, ICS Innovation Hub) have been working closely with ICS partners across the region to support the Yorkshire and Humber Academic Health Science Network (AHSN) research. The learning outcomes focuses on the innovation that took place, both digitally and offline, to make services fit for purpose during one of the most challenging incidents of the NHS' history.
Health and care organisations across the region have been joining-up and working together to share and discuss the rapid response that took place back in March through to the present day. This exercise focused on how services quickly adapted to manage high-volume Covid-19 cases and the stepping down of routine delivery.
The project directly supports the regional health and care system as its looks ahead to the challenges in the coming weeks, particularly the winter period, with the restoration of more services combined with the growing number of Covid-19 cases.
The learning that has taken place involved interviews with leaders in NHS Acute Trusts, Clinical Commissioning Groups and Mental Health Trusts to discuss the learning outcomes.
