Coronavirus (COVID-19)

As we now move into the next phase of the pandemic, and while prevalence of COVID-19 is relatively low, providers only need to submit confirmed cases of COVID-19 to SPOC in certain circumstances. 

Reporting COVID-19 

Providers no longer need to routinely report cases of COVID-19 to the Local Authority SPOC, except in the following circumstances: -

  • Sensitivity or tensions raised by the community, media or that are politically sensitive.
  • Business continuity issues related to staffing in Health & Social Care or where the numbers of affected residents and service users creates an operational risk.

If in the above circumstances you need to report confirmed cases of Covid-19 please complete our SPOC form.
