    COVID-19 has placed the health and social care system under enormous pressure. To meet the demand created by the pandemic, a range of non COVID care and treatment was postponed. Now staff are faced with the new challenge of responding to the treatment backlog safely. Many are understandably still struggling to cope with the mental and physical effects of working on the frontline during a global pandemic. Patients and relatives are also concerned. Some are worried that the delays will have had a negative impact on health outcomes or that they still do not know when they will be seen. Others feel they may have been prematurely discharged to help reduce the backlog. We want to hear from patients, relatives and staff who can share their insight on what is and isn't working, the challenges and the safety concerns. Your experiences will help us identify and highlight patient safety gaps that need addressing. Please comment below to join the conversation or you can get in touch with us at content@pslhub.org if you'd prefer to share your experience anonymously.

    Shared anonymously: "Six years ago I underwent hysteroscopy. Due to very heavy periods they wanted to investigate. I had an LA and the pain was bearable for me. But what really shocked me was that, while I was still in position, with my legs in the air, they said they were just going to insert something that would help with my periods. It wasn't really a question. It was a Mirena implant. They passed me the form to sign while I was still reclined which I thought was odd at the time but I trusted them. It was only when I came home that I could actually research what I had agreed to, something I would have done beforehand usually. Thankfully the Mirena has worked well for me but I know that isn't the case for all women. I still can't believe the approach used to get my 'consent', it certainly didn't feel informed."

    Thank you for sharing your insight @Sally A. I recently watched a webinar about the Your Covid Recovery portal and the lady presenting said that the assessments for post-covid clinic support would likely go via pulmonary clinicians. I am not sure if that is still the case but it sounds like it may be respiratory focused where you went. Which, like you said, may not be meeting everyone's needs as people have concerns and symptoms relating to different parts of the body. We hope the letter we have sent to Simon Stevens will prompt greater clarity so we can highlight any gaps like this.
