Since the advent of COVID-19, the HSE has planned, prepared, reorganised and refocused almost all health services in response to this threat to our population. We have created entirely new COVID-19 services, while protecting a very broad range of urgent care and treatment services for our patients and the public. Urgent, time critical care services, along with many routine services, were protected, meaning that people who needed them had and currently have access to these services. The HSE board and senior management appreciates the huge efforts of our teams in keeping so many health and social care services operating over recent months. Some services that were either not essential, demand was reduced, or were not safe or possible to be delivered, were curtailed in response to COVID-19 and following guidance from NPHET. At this stage, almost all of our community and acute services have resumed to some degree. This document sets out the plans for our safe return to those health services that were suspended or reduced as a result of COVID-19.
