Swine Flu

PCC publish new DoH Swine Flu Update

22nd October 2009

The Department of Health and the Cabinet Office have published new guidance to support pandemic planners based on the latest science and understanding of the swine flu virus.† The latest evidence indicates that the pandemic may peak at a lower rate than they first thought, but they do not suggest that there should be any change to their response in terms of ensuring the NHS and social care organisations are as prepared and resilient as possible for the winter months.†

Ian Dalton, National Director for NHS Flu Resilience, and David Flory Director General, NHS Finance, Performance and Operations, have today written out to all NHS Chief Executives to explain this latest evidence, and to ensure that all organisations continue to plan for managing swine flu alongside the added pressures of winter.† Roy Taylor, National Director for Social Care Resilience, has also written to all Directors of Adult and Children's Social Services.
