The King’s Fund has launched ‘Leading with Covid-19’, a resource portal for health and care leaders to help them to be effective in the current climate.

The Covid-19 outbreak is placing enormous pressure on health and care staff, with unprecedented demands on leaders across the NHS, social care, public health and the voluntary and independent sector.

‘Leading with Covid-19’ aims to provide support to this leadership community. They want to ensure it is practical and helpful so are encouraging people to let them know how they can help. The first quick-read practical guides to be published focus on leading virtual meetings, teaming and finding the space to think. A blog by Professor Don Berwick, President Emeritus at the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, on how leaders can cope in this time of crisis is also featured.
