Making better use of the NHS estate

This issue of Health Business contains some really important and varied articles that I hope will be of interest to you.

Firstly, as shown on the cover of this issue, Henry Rex of techUK has written an article for us on the organisation’s Ten Point Plan for Healthcare and why
digital technology must be at the forefront of improving patient outcomes. You can read the piece on page 37.

Mental health support vital moving forward

Amid all the positive news stories lately, with the vaccination programme exceeding expectations and NHS Test and Trace finally beginning to show its worth, the announcement that healthcare staff will be offered access to evidence-based mental health services at one of 40 new hubs should be celebrated.

Vaccine judged safe and NHS success celebrated

As we print, the news that the Pfizer/BioNTech coronavirus vaccine gaining approval is still fresh, providing hope for NHS staff up and down the country.

The first doses of the jab, which offers up to 95 per cent protection against Covid-19 illness, are already on their way to the UK, with 800,000 due this week. Health and care staff are high in the order of who receives the vaccination first, alongside elderly people in care homes and care home staff.

The coronavirus recovery and what comes next

It is difficult to outline where we stand with the coronavirus crisis. The peak of the virus appears to be behind us, but the task ahead is no less daunting.

Health experts still fear a second wave of coronavirus, which would once again put our hospitals under unprecedented strain, especially as the winter months creep closer. With many returning to work, schools reopening and a slightly late holiday season in full swing, the lockdown restrictions of the Spring seem a distant memory.
