Health and Social Care Select Committee Inquiry: Delivering core NHS and care services during the pandemic and beyond 

This is a joint response submitted by 22 professional bodies and charities (see end). 

Key points 

  • In this submission we have interpreted ‘core NHS and care services’ as both those relating to Covid-19 recovery and non-Covid
  • Rehabilitation is an unmissable stage in the Covid-19 trajectory and recovery. But many survivors are being discharged without this in place. 
  • Services that support rehabilitation for people across a range of conditions are key to getting the country back on its feet and back to work beyond the pandemic
  • Learning from the pandemic needs to be used to shape rehabilitation services for the future and address the weakness of this under-developed part in the current healthcare system
