System response to Covid-19 – SWL NHS changes to services made in response to the pandemic
The coronavirus pandemic has posed an unprecedented challenge to the NHS and healthcare systems around the world. In South West London, our focus has been to increase and protect the provision of high quality frontline acute and critical care services for patients with the most severe complications arising from the infection, at the same time as ensuring the safety and protection of non-coronavirus patients. Please see below a list of SWL NHS changes to services made in response to the pandemic and a letter to inform each local Overview and Scrutiny Committee, local council members as well as the SWL Joint Health Overview and Scrutiny Committee about the changes. We have also sent copies to all MPs, local Healthwatch organisations and Council for Voluntary Services (or equivalent) to note and for information.
