COVID-19: Our Responses and Solutions

The COVID-19 pandemic has been described as the worst public health crisis for a generation and has presented a number  of unique challenges to the health and social care systems. While the NHS strives to free up inpatient and critical care capacity to prepare for the increased number of COVID-19 patients requiring respiratory support, Local Authorities,  Housing Associations and other service providers are facing the combined issues of supporting increased numbers of isolated older individuals with a potentially reduced workforce.

Tunstall’s Connected Care and Health solutions can form an effective part of the response to the COVID-19 outbreak,  helping to monitor and support people at home, reduce pressure on the NHS, provide more preventative and proactive care, reduce social isolation and respond to emergencies.

The Challenges and Solutions for Individuals

  • An estimated 1.5 million people deemed to be at high risk from COVID-19 have been asked to self-isolate for at least 12 weeks
  • Strict social distancing measures have been mandated by the UK  Government for all age groups, including the over 70s 
  • Lacking social connections is comparable to a regular smoking habit, and has worse health outcomes than risk factors such as obesity and physical inactivity
  • Loneliness increases the likelihood of mortality by 26% in older people


The Challenges and Solutions for Monitoring Centres

  • Reduced workforce due to sickness and reduction of onsite staff to comply with social distancing guidelines
  • Maintaining service for existing users who may require additional support during the 12 week recommended social isolation period
  • Increased demands on services associated with protecting the shielded population
  • Need for solutions that enable remote working due to social distancing requirements


The Challenges and Solutions for the NHS

  • NHS England must free up a minimum of 30,000 general and acute beds to meet projected demand
  • Medically fit inpatients must be discharged to free up an estimated 15,000 beds in England alone
  • GP, diagnostic and outpatient appointments for older and vulnerable individuals should be delivered via remote consultations using video, telephone, email and text messages
