Praise for Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin Test and Trace Process

Posted in News

Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP) Test and Trace process was recognised last month by NHS England and NHS Improvement Midlands and East as an exemplar of best practice for the development of their standard operating procedure.  Good practice points included working well across the health and care system across Acute, Community, Primary Care, Specialised Services, and Local Authorities to deliver a truly integrated testing programme for patients and staff; timely access to testing and the results to inform additional actions; use of flow charts to identify data flow, actions and add clarity; scripts for staff discussion to support staff undertaking contact tracing and facilitating discussion; clarity of roles and responsibilities; and, providing the right support to staff via Occupational Health to enhance well-being including support and identification of risk issues such as shopping or living with a vulnerable/shielding person.

Congratulations goes to the Test and Trace Task & Finish Group who were responsible for putting the Test and Trace process in place.
