BYLINE TIMES PODCAST / COVID DEATHS IN CARE HOMES

Listen on

Episode notes

As the UK government is forced to contemplate a fourth Covid lockdown, we return to one of the unresolved issues of the first one in back in March 2020…the question of why so many patients were discharged from hospital and released back into care homes without being tested for the virus?

 

Dr Cathy Gardner, whose father had dementia, died in care during the first Covid wave. She now wants to hold the government to account in court. You can support her crowdfunder here.


We also hear from Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown, Deputy Chair of the cross party Public Accounts Committee and Conservative MP for the Cotswolds.
