NHS England and NHS Improvement’s top current priority is responding to COVID-19, and this has been made clear in the Government’s 2020 to 2021 mandate, which was published on 25 March at the following link:

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/nhs-mandate-2020-to-2021

NHS England and NHS Improvement are continuing to progress the Government’s wider goals as much as possible within that context and will increasingly do so as COVID-19 is brought under control. In the meantime, they have published various COVID-19 Standard Operating Procedures related to COVID-19, which are available at the following link:
