Details

The wider impacts of COVID-19 on health (WICH) monitoring tool collates metrics across a range of wider impacts to provide stakeholders with a single point of access. This will enable stakeholders to:

  • monitor changes over time or against an agreed point in time
  • make timely, informed decisions
  • intervene early to mitigate against poor outcomes
  • understand the wider context on population health

WICH is updated on the third Thursday of each month and may include the addition of new metrics as they become available.

The WICH tool was first published on 16 July 2020. Since then, we have continually developed the tool to include additional metrics and make it easier to use. We would very much like to gather feedback from users of the tool to evaluate its reach, usefulness and impact and understand whether there are further improvements we could make.

We would appreciate it if you would complete a short questionnaire Wider impacts of COVID-19 on health (WICH) tool feedback to help us in our evaluation. The questionnaire should take no more than 5 minutes to complete.

On 1 October 2021, Public Health England (PHE) closed and responsibility for the WICH tool transferred to the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities (OHID).

On 5 November 2020, PHE published an in-depth commentary and associated tables on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on grocery shopping behaviours during the period March to June 2020.
