 New Report Criticises Some Of The Uk Governments Responses To The Covid 19 Pandemic

 A new Parliamentary Committee report, featuring findings from a study conducted by the National Institute for Health Research Health Protection Research Unit in Emerging and Zoonotic Infections at the Universities of Liverpool Oxford, criticises some of the UK Government’s responses to the COVID-19 pandemic. In particular, how the NHS and social care prepared for the COVID-19 peak.

The COVID-19 outbreak presented unprecedented challenges to health and social care services in England. After the first cases of COVID-19 in England were reported in January 2020, the NHS and the adult social care sector responded swiftly to prepare for the impact of the pandemic within hospitals and care homes. The NHS was severely stretched but able to meet overall demand for COVID-19 treatment during the pandemic’s April peak. Unfortunately, it has been a very different story for adult social care.
