The coronavirus outbreak has changed the NHS and social care, ushering in rapid transformation at a time of immense pressure and personal and professional challenge.
Over the past few weeks, one message from leaders and clinicians across the UK has been clear: we must build on the progress made to chart a new course.
NHS Reset is a new NHS Confederation campaign to contribute to the public debate on what the health and care system should look like post COVID-19.
Galvanising members from across the NHS Confederation and wider partners in health and social care, it aims to recognise the sacrifices and achievements of the COVID period, rebuild local systems and reset the way we plan, commission and deliver health and care.
The campaign will support leaders to:
- recognise both the sacrifice and achievements of the health and care sector’s response to COVID-19, including the major innovations that have been delivered at pace
- rebuild local service provision to meet the physical, mental and social needs of communities affected by severe economic and social disruption
- reset our ambitions for what the health and care system of the future should look like, including its relationship with the public and public services.
It will seek to influence forthcoming national strategies, including from NHS England and NHS Improvement, and their priorities for a reset. It will also look to guide local systems through their own thinking, ensuring they are able to lock in the beneficial changes they have collectively brought forward.
