COVID - 19 update - 29th March 2020
The current spread of the Covid-19 coronavirus is placing significant additional demands on NHS services and supply chains. In an effort to maintain continuity of care provision, healthcare professionals will need to make decisions on how best to deliver services in a rapidly changing environment with newly emerging constraints in resources.
The NWPQA team have developed a centralised resource of advice and resources to support Aseptic Units through this period. The resource includes:
- stablity data for commonly requested drugs,
- national issued guidance and
- a series of Q+A’s to provide guidance and support on managing common key emerging issues has been developed.
This guidance will be continuously added to and updated.
In order to access the resources follow this link: https://www.nwpqa.nhs.uk/
