COVID-19 - One year on from the declaration of a global pandemic

Thursday 11th March marked a year since the World Health Organisation declared COVID-19 a global pandemic.

In recognition of this and, more specifically, the extraordinary determination and commitment of health and social care staff across Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon, and Wiltshire during this time, the BSW CCG commissioned a video to highlight some of the incredible work that has gone on.

This includes interviews with one of the vaccination team and a patient at STEAM in Swindon. Watch it here. 

Here, at Healthwatch BANES, we too would like to recognise the efforts of everyone, in and out of social care.

The past year has been challenging but also rewarding watching people come together to create change and improve services for the better.
