The current impacts from Coronavirus (COVID-19) are, unsurprisingly, creating both uncertainty and a high amount of pressure on Health Care and Social Care providers.

Organisations will be facing a unique set of circumstances as a result of the effects of the outbreak. Companies of all sizes will be having to consider the safety and welfare of their staff whilst ensuring that their patients continue to receive high-quality, compassionate care by professional, competent teams.

With the government providing daily updates, announcements and advice, the situation can change quickly and companies need to be prepared, adaptable and decisive to safeguard themselves and others during this unsettling time.
