We are delighted to share with you a copy of Cumbria Learning and Improvement Collaborative's Seventh Annual Report.
"Looking back it seems that, for all who work in health and care, 2020-21 has been a year of experience like no other. In coping with unprecedented demand from COVID-19, we have solved problems, thought creatively, and adapted to using technology in a far greater way than we ever anticipated.
Our health and care staff have responded amazingly with many examples of individuals and teams going the extra mile, working differently and working together, all united against a common enemy. The people who use our services have responded well too, adapting to remote consultation, new technology, and developing a greater understanding of preventing ill health.
Although recovery will take time – time to re-establish services and time to re-build our personal resilience – we have learnt a lot through our experience, and there have been some positive changes that have arisen through the pandemic that we mustn’t lose.
We have shown that we are resourceful, creative and adaptive; it is important now to embed the positive benefits of change and keep using these skills in continuous improvements going forward. We have shown what we can do in a time of crisis, but what could we achieve if we can utilise those skills to bring about improvements day-to-day?"
