Covid-19 is the most significant public health crisis in the history of the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) and unprecedented in living memory. This presentation will discuss the ways in which the crisis is upsetting paradigms of care and challenging core professional values, drawing from a set of UK-wide ongoing interviews with a range of NHS staff. It will discuss the NHS’ response to the pandemic, staff-patient relationships, the notion of resilience, and attitudes to the NHS more broadly. It concludes by considering what the longer legacy of Covid-19 might be.
