A new hub has been launched to support the collation and sharing of knowledge and intelligence across the North East and Yorkshire about the impacts of COVID-19, and the response to this, on non-COVID related disease and death.
C-WorKS is a collaboration of the Public Health England (PHE) Local Knowledge and Intelligence Service (LKIS), NHS England, North of England Commissioning Support Unit (NECS), and other partners including our ARC for the North East and North Cumbria.
C-WorKS aims to:
- Bring together people and organisations who hold different knowledge and understanding to enable more effective, equitable and efficient ways of working across the whole region.
- Aid the sharing of information, reduce duplication, highlight gaps and maximise the value of non-COVID, system-wide work done in North East England
- Empower members to add their own resources, post questions and proactively contact others who are working on similar issues.
How it works:
On the C-WorKS site there is curated information on non-COVID impacts, provided by users on an ongoing basis and in a framework. Users can upload or describe information about work, share contact details, view information, pose questions and start discussions. Further details about this are in the C-WorKS pro forma.
C-WorKS is hosted via the Public Health England (PHE) run PHINE Network group on the Knowledge Hub platform and registration is required.
Instructions can be found on the How To Register document.
