What A world after Covid Could look like

In the last two years, the world has seen unprecedented changes to the way we live, work, and even treat one another. We’ve seen adversity and conflict, but we’ve also seen resilience and hope.

And whilst the pandemic will undoubtedly have a long-lasting impact on the NHS, could it spell the end of Britain’s greatest achievement?

There’s no denying COVID has had a devastating impact on the NHS – partly because who could have known a global pandemic would ever happen, let alone cause such damage.

In the early stages of the pandemic, no one really knew what the virus could or would do, and as a result of this ignorance and panic, everyday healthcare was left by the wayside. Only now are we seeing how much of an impact the virus is having on not only the individuals who are left suffering but their loved ones too.

There’s no denying the NHS has worked tirelessly for the last two years, with many doctors, nurses, porters, receptionists, and cleaners choosing to live apart from their own family and choosing to work day and night to help those in need. However, as a result of an over-worked and underfunded workforce, there has been a dramatic increase in the misdiagnosis of illnesses by health professionals, and as such, there’s been a greater demand for medical negligence solicitors who are seeking compensation on behalf of their clients.

Whilst suing the NHS will never take money away from NHS funding, the additional cost of these mistakes could severely impact public trust in the NHS, as well as impact its future.
