Consultation display

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and its management, on health and social care in Wales

Purpose of the consultation

The Health and Social Care Committee is undertaking work on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and its management, on the issues within its remit.


As part of this work, the Committee is keen to hear from anyone with an interest in these matters about any issues they think the Committee should be aware of. The consultation will remain open on a rolling basis – there is no deadline for responses.


The Committee will monitor and review responses to the consultation on an ongoing basis, and will use the evidence to help inform decisions about any areas on which focused work may be needed.


We encourage anyone with expertise or experience to share your views, with the full knowledge that your views will be welcomed and valued.


In addition to inviting written evidence, we may also arrange oral evidence sessions or other activity. Details of these sessions will be published on our website in due course.

Individual cases

While all views submitted will help our thematic scrutiny of COVID-19 and its impact, we are unable to advise on, or take up, individual cases. However, your local representatives may be able to assist you; you can find their details on our website.


If you have questions about COVID-19, for example about health and social care, employment rights, benefits, business support, travel, food, retail, cancellations, or, education, the Senedd Research blog can point you in the direction of the most up-to-date information and guidance from official and reputable sources.
