Our Covid response
Through research and knowledge transfer, education and community, we lead the way in the response to the pandemic. From ground breaking research detecting COVID-19 in wastewater, through training healthcare workers and holding government decisions to account.
And we support our students and local communities through the most challenging times too.
The contribution of our health care students
“I was possibly a little hesitant at first when I heard that third years could opt in to a temporary register to help in the COVID-19 effort. But I am working with a team on placement where, however busy the nurses are, I feel completely supported. They find time to explain, demonstrate and teach so that I will learn the skills to care for our patients. Their confidence in me has helped me see that it is a privilege to be able to do this work and care for our patients.”
