  • Adult social care - winter preparedness plan: 2020 to 2021

    Created: 16/11/2020

    The Scottish Government has recently published its Adult Social Care Winter Preparedness Plan for 2020 to 2021.

    The plan is based on four principles:

    • Learning from evidence to protect people who use social care support from the direct impact of COVID-19, and wider winter viruses.
    • Ensuring that people have good physical and mental health and wellbeing, through provision of high quality integrated health and care services.
    • Supporting the social care workforce to deliver safe support and care and to have positive mental health and wellbeing.
    • Working in collaboration to plan and deliver high quality care.

    Additional measures include further funding for staff training, regular reviews of COVID-19 symptoms for staff providing and people receiving residential care, and investment in digital connectivity.
