When COVID-19 started in December 2019, most health systems were unprepared for the pressure and chaos it presented. The speed at which it devastated nations required a high level of responsiveness from health systems to ensure they were not overwhelmed by its impact while also continuing to provide care for other health conditions. The NHS services were significantly disrupted, raising the need to make unprecedented decisions relating to health service delivery: most services shifted to remote/virtual delivery and face-to-face consultations when clinically necessary.
