How has community healthcare service provision and resources changed as a result of COVID?

1 September 2020

This report looks at changes in the activity from three broad sections of the CHS (Community Health Service – otherwise known as ‘Community Services Data Set’) data, care contacts, referrals and immunisations. Specifically we focus on number of care contacts by medium, care activity, immunisations, attendance status, sources of referrals and reasons for referrals which may be due to COVID-19 outbreak in England. We use data from 4 months of CHS, March 2019, April 2019, March 2020 and April 2020. We have not focused on the impact of COVID-19 on number of services users (number of patients with care contacts or the number of patients with referrals).
