People’s Covid Inquiry | Session 5: Impact on frontline staff and key workers

21st April 2021 - 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

It became very clear at the outset of the pandemic that the UK Government needed to radically reappraise the roles of key workers in society. Our inquiry asks: were the roles of key workers and the risks they faced understood; and were they supported and protected? Were employment conditions, in-work poverty and health and safety at work given adequate consideration by the Government?

In order to answer these questions we will hear the evidence of frontline staff working in the NHS, in care services, transport and education. Evidence will also be drawn from the work of bodies including Independent SAGE and assorted trade unions and professional associations across these sectors.


​Michael Mansfield QC (chair), Professor Neena Modi, Dr. Tolullah Oni, Dr. Jacky Davis, Lorna Hackett Barrister (Counsel to the Inquiry)
