Every winter there is a rise in demand for health services and given the current pandemic this is likely to be further compounded.
The Department of Health has noted that reduced circulation of influenza virus and lower levels of influenza vaccine coverage compared with previous years may have resulted in low levels of community immunity. This, coupled with international borders reopening could lead to increased influenza cases and transmission this season. Proactively planning for winter and the flu season can help streamline processes and ensure those most at risk of becoming unwell get the care they need.
