After the virus: building a more resilient, fairer society

April 30th, 2020

As the world looks forward to recovering from COVID-19, our researchers are reflecting on the challenges we face as well as opportunities to build a more resilient, fairer society.

There is little that is untouched by the virus, and our experts will examine issues ranging from international politics to individual mental health, from delivering economic recovery to consuming culture in new ways.

In a series curated by the University’s Institute for Policy and Engagement, we hope to provoke debate about how we build a stronger society after the virus.

Community Pharmacy has played a very special role during the pandemic as it is the only accessible part of the NHS with an open door. Pharmacists and their teams have been working incredibly hard under extreme pressure seeing far more patients than usual and have often been acting as minor injury clinics as people have bene frightened to go to A&E. Virtual consultations have increased and there are very good examples of new services being brought in at pace for example, online smoking cessation services, online contraceptive services, services to access end of life medicines to name but a few. Communication with GPs has often improved with direct email access between the professionals rather than the barrier of the receptionist. There is urgent need for debate as to how community pharmacy can develop and expand as part of the NHS.
