Coronavirus (COVID19)

Update 2 November 2020

On this webpage you will find updates on the impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) on our health and social care services that we are responsible for. It also includes some relevant national guidance and links to local and national information and advice websites.

What are we doing?

We fully appreciate that this is a worrying time for everyone, especially those living at home who need health and social care services, care home residents, families and carers.

We are currently working closely with Angus Council and NHS Tayside to monitor and respond to the situation for Coronavirus (COVID-19) and senior managers across all three partners meet regularly to manage the impact of Coronavirus on our health and social care services within the county.

While this is an unprecedented situation, it is something that we have planned for, and we are now putting our contingency plans into action.

We are doing all we can to ensure essential services continue to be delivered while minimising disruption wherever possible. However, we have had to implement some contingency measures to ensure critical services can be maintained. These will continue to be reviewed as the situation develops but we will keep you updated as required.

Our highest priority is to ensure that essential services can be delivered to support vulnerable people, and we are working closely with partner agencies to ensure that people continue to be cared for, and supported at home.

Your co-operation and understanding at this difficult time is really appreciated.

We will concentrate resources to make sure vital services are maintained, with greatly reduced staffing levels expected in the coming weeks.

All our staff are following the national guidance when visiting people in their own homes.
