2021/22 priorities and operational planning guidance
Thank you to you and your teams for your extraordinary efforts over the last year. On 29 January we marked 12 months since we started to treat this country’s first patients with COVID-19 and began to see the impact of the pandemic on our health services. Since then, with thanks to the whole NHS team, we have treated over 390,000 people with COVID-19 in hospitals, and many more in primary, community and mental health care. We have continued to deliver other essential services, treating over 275,000 people with cancer and dealing with increases in urgent and emergency demand.
