A DISTRICT care trust has taken part in an international initiative to share learning during the coronavirus pandemic.

Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust was invited to provide a UK perspective at the virtual event, which brought together health and care providers from across the globe.

Information was shared and the trust showcased work it has delivered jointly with voluntary and community organisations and care providers throughout Bradford, Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven.

Initiatives developed in response to the pandemic have included the formation of a dedicated, multi-disciplinary home visiting team for adults who are symptomatic or diagnosed with Covid-19.

The team brings together out-of-hours district nurses and other trust services, such as immunisation and vaccination, to support people at home.

Trust chairman, Cathy Elliott, who took part in the virtual gathering, said: “The event was an opportunity to share the great work across the Bradford and Airedale localities that’s been recognised by our international peers, and hear how other countries are meeting similar challenges.”
