BMA COVID-19 guidance

Read the COVID-19 toolkit for GPs and practices, to help answer questions on a large range of topics relating to COVID-19. There is also guidance on the following topics:

 

Care Quality Commission (CQC) Updates for providers about coronavirus (COVID-19)

Advice and guidance for providers recruiting staff and volunteers to health and social care services in response to coronavirus (COVID-19)
 

Translated COVID-19 Patient Information Materials: Covid-10 Infographics

COVID-19 Infographics are a UK-based team of doctors, medical students and volunteers who are aiming to translate evidence-based and easily accessible COVID-19 information into as many languages as possible.

BAME communities are disproportionately affected by COVID-19 and Covid-19 Infographics want to help provide people with access to the information they need to protect their health. The graphics are translated by a team of reliable translators through volunteers and services such as Translators Without Borders and the information included in them are checked over by doctors and is sourced entirely from sources such as NHS England, the WHO and NICE.

As Kent & Medway covers an area with a number of people who speak languages other than English, you may find these materials useful to distribute within the communities your practices are based in. There are translations of infographics into over 20 languages, including Urdu, Polish, Hindi, Lithuanian, Arabic and a number of South Asian and Eastern European languages.

Covid-19 Infographics would also value your input and insights into their work as well as if there are any topics or languages you would like them to cover.
