Welcome to another health newsletter and much has changed since our last newsletter in November. There is of course the good news of the mass roll out of vaccines but COVID-19 continues to take a toll across the country and has serious repercussions for our national health systems across the four nations of the UK.

As ever, CIPFA strives to offer support and help for the sector in these troubling times. We offer podcasts (our latest is on COVID), free webinars, insight articles via CIPFA Thinks and our online COVID-19 hub.

We also have brought together all our resources, insight and events for health on our new health landing page which we will be expanding, updating and improving over the coming weeks and months.

We hope you are well and wish you all the best,


Dr Eleanor Roy

CIPFA Health and Social Care Manager
