Coronavirus Resources

Helping you find what you are looking for, when you need it.

 

 

As our country battles to respond to Coronavirus COVID-19 we find our lives have become even more digital as we move to social distancing and self isolation. Yet we know that now, more than ever, there is a need and a desire to connect to tackle and overcome this very real challenge.

We also know that many of you out there are feeling a real sense of overwhelm amongst the constant feed of information, tweets, articles, websites, news updates and more.  These pages are designed to act as searchlight or signpost – something to cut through the volume, the twitter feed and the emails and help you find the digital gems you need.

We have curated this page as a ‘spotlight service’ to help you find what you are looking for, when you want to find it.

We are working with teams across the Health and Care system to offer a route to the most updated, relevant and helpful information under the categories below.

If you have any feedback or a link you think would be helpful, please contact us with the details.

You can click one of our categories or scroll through the page to see highlights.

If you’re looking for Government and Organisational advice you can find it here and Training Resources are available here.
