Planning your way effectively through COVID-19 – Peopletoo working with Brighton & Hove
Posted on 24th April, 2020
Brighton & Hove City Council’s adult social care team has created a new interim assessment and support planning framework in response to the planning and logistical challenges caused by the COVID-19 crisis.
The new framework has been developed in partnership with Peopletoo. It supports quick and effective professional decision making during the crisis, in line with the Coronavirus Act and guidance and Ethical Framework.
The passing of the Coronavirus Act 2020 enables councils to use Care Act easements to ensure the best possible care for people in our society during this exceptional period.
It is intended to enable councils to prioritise resources if they can’t meet their statutory duties in full due to demand spikes and / or staffing shortages as the COVID-19 pandemic reaches its peak.
