SG must have clear strategy to deal with non-covid condition

How will Government address the immediate short term impact of people not presenting with other non-Covid health conditions? Will deaths from other non-covid conditions rise the longer lockdown continues? Seeing a 40% reduction in cases being presented. Similarly, seen deaths not related to Covid going up, heart disease. Not sure if people do not want to take up a place or fear of catching Covid. Lung disease, cancer- are we expecting a surge in cases and is the NHS prepared for this? SG must have clear strategy to deal with non-covid conditions and the issues of people not going to appointments or accessing health service for non-covid issues. What more can be done? Access to health services - number of people presenting for things like cancer has reduced we need to make sure that people are able to present themselves. Not going to have people vaccinated until the end of the year. Are we expecting to have people not presenting until then?


This is a question and not clear what the recommendation is. Needs clarification

Yes, we’ve moved the most popular issues over to this page to start the conversation about recommendations. We didn’t want to dictate what potential recommendations could be, so when the recommendation was unclear we have posted the suggestion as a series of discussion points to encourage debate on wording for recommendations. What would you suggest for a recommendation(s) around tackling indirect impacts on the health service and public health?
