unstar this property answer text <p>As part of an unprecedented response to this global pandemic we have drawn on the expertise and resources of a number of public and private sector partners to support the National Health Service and social care sector. Officials across Government have assessed each and every contract that has been entered into to ensure compliance with procurement regulations for exceptional circumstances, where being able to procure at speed has been critical in the national response to COVID-19.</p><p>Authorities are allowed to procure goods, services and works with extreme urgency in exceptional circumstances using regulation 32(2)(c) under the Public Contract Regulations 2015.The guide to how contracting authorities should respond to coronavirus was published on 18 March. This is applicable to all contracting authorities, including central Government departments, executive agencies, non-departmental public bodies, local authorities, NHS bodies and the wider public sector. We have been clear from the outset that public authorities must achieve value for money for taxpayers and use good commercial judgement.</p><p>The Contract Award Notices, containing information on the final agreed value of the contact, are being published on Contracts Finder as quickly as possible in line with Government transparency guidelines at the following link:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/contracts-finder" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/contracts-finder</a></p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The Government has announced a life assurance scheme for frontline National Health Service and social care staff. The scheme is non-contributory and pays a £60,000 lump sum where staff who had been recently working where personal care is provided to individuals who have contracted COVID-19 die as a result of the virus.</p><p>Staff working in hospitals and care homes are eligible, providing that their work requires them to be present in frontline NHS or social care settings where COVID-19 is present.</p><p>As well as NHS employees, the scheme also covers staff who work for organisations that support the delivery of NHS services or work on an NHS contract, such as agency and bank staff. Within social care the scheme covers all staff employed by an organisation registered by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to provide social care services. In addition, any members of the social care workforce in non-CQC registered organisations are also eligible, if their employer receives public funding.</p>

This guidance is designed to clarify existing practice for the verification of death outside of hospitals and to provide a framework for safe verification of death in this COVID-19 emergency period. It is for all cases outside hospital when verification of death may be completed by people who have been trained to do so in line with their employer’s policies, including medical practitioners, registered nurses or paramedics. It is also to be exercised by other non-medical professionals, usually and normally independent of family members, who are verifying death using remote clinical support.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this
