Priority 1 – Keeping Residents Safe

The COVID-19 pandemic has now been a major focus of work across the health and social care sector for more than 12 months.  During that time both organisations and individuals have had to deal with unprecedented challenges in responding to the most significant public health crisis of the last hundred years. Events since the beginning of 2021 have made it clear that new challenges will continue to arise, even while the COVID-19 vaccination programme provides hope for ending the crisis.

Recommendations: Board members are recommended to note and approve the attached action plan update. Also, to agree to receive a further update at the July meeting.

Community lateral flow test service to help to control Covid-19

Buckinghamshire Council plans to provide a ‘rapid’ Covid-19 testing service on a twice-weekly basis for key workers in public-facing roles from early February. The service has to meet certain government-defined criteria to be eligible for central funding. The purpose is to help identify people who have no symptoms and yet have Covid-19 (and thus may be infectious) so that they can self-isolate and thereby help to break the chain of transmission.

Recommendations: Board members are recommended to approve the proposed service
