Infection Control and Testing funding

DHSC logo
DHSC Regional Leads have been asked to gather feedback on the process for receiving Infection Control (and Testing) Fund allocations. They want to understand the burdens that came along with the grants and are aware that the process could have been smoother than it was. This will ensure any future grants are delivered in a more effective way.
And, please don’t forget to sign the provider-led petition asking for Infection Control and testing funding to be reinstated supporting care workers to receive full pay whilst on sick leave from covid-19.
Government is increasingly hiding behind ‘Covid-19 is just another sickness – deal with it’ attitude.
