Abstract

The aim of this research was to explore the impact of providing health and social care during a pandemic on the UK health and social care workforce. A survey questionnaire measured wellbeing, quality of working life, and ways of coping whilst working during the pandemic. Work and home-life segmentation was also explored. Additional open-ended questions sought further detail from respondents on how the pandemic had affected their work and work setting, what employers had done to support their staff, lessons that could be learned for future pandemics and ‘normal’ health and social care provision. The perceptions of health and social care workers about the ‘Clap for Carers’ initiative were also garnered.
