The British Medical Association has undertaken one of the largest, most detailed analyses of doctors’ views and experiences of the pandemic. The first two reports, to be published by the BMA, highlight serious failures to protect staff, during the COVID crisis.
A major review into the UK Government’s handling of the pandemic and its impact on the NHS, the health of the population, and doctors, has been undertaken by the British Medical Association (BMA). Based on its review findings, the BMA has concluded that the UK Government: “failed in its duty of care to protect doctors and the wider healthcare workforce from avoidable harm and suffering in its management of the COVID-19 pandemic”.
The first two published reports (from a series of five in total) provide comprehensive accounts of the lived experiences of doctors throughout the pandemic, collated from thousands of doctors across the UK, including those who were on the frontline during COVID-19. They also draw upon realtime surveys over the past two years, as well as formal testimonies, data and evidence sessions from stakeholders.
