The draft terms of reference for the COVID-19 Public Inquiry have been announced
The draft terms of reference for the COVID-19 Public Inquiry have been announced. These are wide-ranging and cover the public health response, including how and when decisions were made; how the NHS and wider health and social care system responded, including issues or capacity and resilience; and the economic response.
Inquiry Chair, Baroness Hallett, will now hold a four week public consultation, open until 23.59 on 7 April 2022. You can respond to the consultation by completing the online survey at UK Covid-19 Public Inquiry.
Hempsons’ dedicated COVID-19 Inquiry team are able to provide advice on the implications of the draft terms of reference for health and social care providers, and support in preparing for the forthcoming Inquiry. To find out how we can help please contact the team via the links below.
