Health and social care

Adult social care

In response to these unprecedented times, and in line with Government guidance, our priorities in Adult Social Care during COVID-19 are to:

  • work with the NHS to ensure people are discharged from hospital and supported in the community with appropriate health and social care
  • safeguard and protect those adults considered most at risk in our city
  • respond to urgent and immediate care and support requirements
  • work with our local care homes and care providers to support clinically vulnerable communities
  • support our local carers who are looking after clinically vulnerable people
  • provide signposting to government guidance on shielding 'extremely vulnerable' people
