Dementia isolation at home
We were told PPE issue is now resolved (I said it wasn’t)

Urgent care settings now being set – Bodmin and C/Redruth community hospitals
Co-ordination hubs – three; East/Mid/West located at Trevail? Bodmin, Sedgemoor and Dolcoath

Verification of death seems to be undertakers (as was the case for a recent death for me)
Cause of death now any doctor not necessarily one who has seen the person

I informed group of 2/52 SSP only then Universal Credit, but that one provider on my earlier call suggested providers pay and claim over 2/52 SSP covid related shielding pay back from the council from the Covid money coming out from central gov’t.
