Our fifth survey is will be live soon if you are interested please click on the survey link at the bottom of the page.

The first online survey was conducted during wave one of the Covid-19 pandemic in UK and the data collected through the survey helped us to establish a baseline against which we will compare the results from the next four surveys.

The focus groups have been designed to provide us with a deeper understanding of what it is like to work in health and social care in UK during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Emerging findings can be found in the Reports and Publications section.
