Abstract

The seminar presentation discusses the Governments development of a database to record research and treatments to help professionals to deliver care relating to Covid-19. The presentation discusses that the database omits the most important research, the patients experience/expertise. The presenter explores this by using their own experience of going through 2020 having being diagnosed with cancer and having to undergo treatment through the Covid-19 pandemic and the isolating impact this has. It also discusses that mental health was not central to the care package
