On the 12th October, the House of Commons and Science and Technology Committee and Health and Social Care Committee published their report: ‘Coronavirus: lessons learned to date, examining the initial UK response to the covid pandemic’.
On its release, committee chair the Rt Hon Jeremy Hunt MP said: “The UK response has combined some big achievements with some big mistakes. Our vaccine programme was boldly planned and effectively executed. Our test and trace programme took too long to become effective. The Government took seriously scientific advice but there should have been more challenge from all to the early UK consensus that delayed a more comprehensive lockdown.”
In this episode of the COVID-19 Series, we welcome the Rt Hon Jeremy Hunt MP to discuss this report, the government’s pandemic response over the last 18 months, and what lessons need to be learned for the continued management of this pandemic, and those to come.
Rt Hon Jeremy Hunt MP will be interviewed by the Vice President of the RSM, Dr Claire Bayntun.
Due to an anticipated high number of questions, we will not be collecting live questions for this session. Please submit questions in advance through registration.
All views expressed in this webinar are of the speakers themselves and not of The RSM. Please note this webinar will be recorded and stored by The RSM and may be used in the future on various internet channels.
