Medbelle's Response to COVID-19
It is all of our responsibility to contain the spread of the new coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) and the resulting disease (COVID-19).
March 17th, 2020
We at Medbelle are fully committed to contributing as much as we can to limiting the spread of coronavirus.
Video consultations with our surgeons are also currently being organised so patients can still begin their treatment journey without needing to travel.
Moreover, we are currently exploring if we can provide coronavirus tests across the UK.
Even though there are no confirmed cases amongst our staff, we believe social distancing through remote work and digitising as many healthcare services as we possibly can are valuable measures.
We are committed to not just protecting ourselves but the members of our communities most vulnerable to the spread of this virus, as well as society as a whole.
While physical distancing feels drastic, it is the most effective means of slowing the spread of COVID-19, which is essential to help every medical institution prepare and manage capacity in the coming weeks and months.
This article from the Washington Post brilliantly describes why we need to Flatten the Curve with preventative measures like self-isolating and social distancing.
We strongly encourage other organisations to go remote in their day-to-day business wherever possible.
The more digital we can all become, the better outcomes we will see in terms of healthcare capacity. Feel free to reach out and we’ll happily share our work-from-home guide to help you smooth the transition to remote work.
If you want to learn more about what you as an individual can do to contribute, please have a look at the practical advice in our coronavirus guidelines article on the Medbelle blog. This resource will be regularly updated with the latest official advice.
