The Department of Health & Social Care (DHSC) works across public health, the NHS and adult social care, covering one of the widest remits in the public sector. It is responsible for ensuring everyone can access the health and care they need – from supporting people to have the best start in life to staying in good health and living as independently as they can. We are also central to the government’s response to COVID-19, the biggest challenge the country has faced in a lifetime leading on the delivery of vaccines, antivirals and testing, making this one of the most exciting, varied and challenging roles in communications.
Since May 2021 the NHS COVID Pass has been accessible to enable individuals to show their Covid Status for International Travel and domestically to access venues and events in the UK. On 21st February the Prime Minister announced the living with Covid Strategy,
which sets out to remove certification requirements in England, but that the NHS COVID Pass would be required to access venues and events in the UK and for International Travel Purposes for the foreseeable future.
Covid Pass is an award-winning DHSC programme undertaking a complex transition whilst continuing to deliver a vital citizen service in a changing health landscape.
