About the framework

The framework explains:

  • the possible futures for the course of the pandemic
  • the on-going risks of COVID-19 and the mitigations we will put in place to protect people
  • how we are going to prevent, protect, treat and respond to COVID-19 over the next year

It focuses on 4 themes:

  • Prevention: continuing to encourage individual voluntary behaviours and voluntary measures such as good hand hygiene and staying at home if you feel unwell, as well as promoting the vaccination programme
  • Protection: infection prevention control (IPC) for high risk settings and effective outbreak management 
  • Treatment: making treatments for COVID-19 available at home and in hospitals
  • Response: planning for surge capacity, including contingency arrangements and community and voluntary response
