COVID-19 Rapid Reporting frequency change – September 2021

Until the 6th September, organisations have been required to return their COVID-19 and PIMS-TS rapid reporting spreadsheet on a monthly basis. Thank you again to the PICU teams for their ongoing hard work in returning these.

PICANet is now moving back to a more frequent reporting schedule for COVID-19 and PIMS-TS cases from units. Returns will now be due fortnightly. The PICANet team will continue to advise of these dates by email.

This change is due to a potential increase in the number of new infections due to schools re-opening, as well as requests for increased monitoring from NHS England. The change will remain in place until further notice and will be reviewed if there is a change in national infection rates.

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to get in touch with the team via
