All-Wales COVID-19 Secondary Care Guideline – ICST

All-Wales COVID-19 Secondary Care Guideline

The All-Wales Secondary care COVID-19 hospital guideline (linked below) was created in early March as the COVID-19 pandemic gathered momentum. It was recognised that since this was a new disease, where evidence around the management of infected patients was scant, that we needed to create a guideline that was dynamic and responsive to emerging evidence. We therefore created a guideline with two key components, a fixed aspect which reflected the general flow through the hospital of COVID-19 patients from admission, to COVID ward or ITU, or to discharge.
