COVID-19 Wider Impacts - Cardiovascular Activity Edit
Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is a new strain of coronavirus first identified in Wuhan, China. Clinical presentation may range from mild-to-moderate illness to pneumonia or severe acute respiratory infection.\r\nThe COVID-19 pandemic has wider impacts on individuals\u2019 health, and their use of healthcare services, than those that occur as the direct result of infection. Reasons for this may include:\r\n\r\n\u2022 Individuals being reluctant to use health services because they do not want to burden the NHS or are anxious about the risk of infection.\r\n\r\n\u2022 The health service delaying preventative and non-urgent care such as some screening services and planned surgery.\r\n\r\n\u2022 Other indirect effects of interventions to control COVID-19, such as mental or physical consequences of distancing measures.\r\n \r\nThis dataset provides information on trend data regarding the wider impact of the pandemic on cardiovascular attendances in A&E departments. Data is available from the beginning of 2020 along with historical activity (average from 2018 and 2019) for comparison purposes. The recent trend data for Accident & Emergency Department attendances are shown by age group, and by broad area deprivation category (Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation, SIMD).\r\n\r\nThis data is also available on the COVID-19 Wider Impact Dashboard.\r\nAdditional data sources relating to this topic area are provided in the Links section of the Metadata below. Information on COVID-19, including stay at home advice for people who are self-isolating and their households, can be found on NHS Inform.\r\n\r\nAll publications and supporting material to this topic area can be found in the weekly COVID-19 Statistical Report. The date of the next release can be found on our list of forthcoming publications.
