Patient-friendly information on Coronavirus for healthcare

Accessible, high-quality information on COVID-19 is available in one place to make it easy for health and care workers, particularly GPs, practice staff and social prescribers to find trusted information they can use with patients, families, carers and service users, quickly and easily.

Selected by HEE’s national NHS Knowledge and Library Services team, the Knowledge and Library Services Coronavirus Resources page provides a gateway to the best available resources, gathered from a range of relevant health and third sector providers.

Updated regularly, the tailored content includes materials aimed at specific groups such as children and young people, older people and carers and for people with cancer or long-term conditions as well as providing resources in different accessible formats.  Most recently sections have been added on long-COVID and vaccination.
