The last three months has seen the NHS respond rapidly to the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, changing in ways and at a rate never seen before. That is testament to the commitment and willingness of patients, and health and social care professionals to adapt and embrace new ways of working. Collaboration across the health and social system building on existing partnerships has been key to sustaining key NHS services.
Our team at the Oxford AHSN moved to remote working in March before the lockdown. The clinical skills and expertise of some of our staff has been utilised on the NHS frontline. We have refocused our work using our experience in sourcing innovation, sharing expertise and connections to support our partners across the region in delivering an effective response to the pandemic. You can read about some of these initiatives below and on our website.
