CORONAVIRUS AND SOCIAL CARE: ESSENTIAL GUIDANCE FROM MY COLLEAGUES

Whilst this blog deals, primarily with procedural issues and problems arising from Covid-19 there are major issues relating to substantive law.  The law on social care, in particular,  is now a major issue. On the Kings Chambers site Coronavirus: Guidance for Lawyers and Business there are a number of important articles on this topic of the Coronavirus Act, legislation and social care.  This appears to be developing daily and is worthwhile keeping a close eye on the Kings’ blog if you practice in this area.
