Verbal update from the Accountable Officer, NHS Vale of York Clinical Commissioning Group and the Chief Executive, York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

Local health and care services are facing unprecedented challenges including increasing demand across all delivery settings. Additionally, the workforce continues to be reduced in capacity and is fatigued, with many professions continuing to work in settings constrained by the requirements for robust infection control.


This Committee will hear from local NHS leaders about this situation and will offer an opportunity to discuss this and also any specific issues that may have been raised previously and are now changed in the context of the pandemic.
