Spotlight: Covid-19

The Bevan Commission's response to the Covid-19 pandemic

We live in unprecedented times and Covid–19 is affecting lives locally, nationally, and globally. The Bevan Commission has utilised the expertise it has available through its Bevan Commissioners, Bevan Advocates, Bevan Exemplars and Bevan Fellows, to best effect for people in Wales and wider afield. We will continue to observe, analyse, interpret and comment on the situation with a view to securing a better way forward and a vision fit for the future. As part of this work we have produced a series of opinion pieces addressing a range of relevant Covid-19 issues as well as capturing the experiences of people, new learning and other opportunities as they evolve.

In Place Of Fear

Our Witness Statement In Place of Fear – Forging a Sustainable Recovery (Better Future) for Health and Care in Wales lays out how we will learn from and respond to the challenges and opportunities created by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Prudent Healthcare and Covid-19

Watch Bevan Commissioner Professor Don Berwick discuss how the principles of prudent healthcare can help NHS Wales recover from and reset after the coronavirus pandemic.

Doing Things Differently

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Bevan Commission has undertaken a series of panel events to discuss and reflect on the important choices ahead for health and care in Wales as it continues to respond to, recover from, and refocus after Covid-19.


Managing mental health in the workplace

This event supported managers, HR colleagues and employers in highlighting the current issues on mental health in the workplace and offered expert presentations on workplace mental health theory and practice amid Covid-19.

Returning to work

The Bevan Commission hosted an online seminar with the Society of Occupational Medicine, a pre-launch of a new toolkit to promote best practice in return to work post Covid-19 lockdown.

Following the success of the initial online return to work seminar, the Bevan Commission hosted a follow-up event supported by the Society of Occupational Medicine on Monday 1st June 2020. The seminar was aimed at supporting organisations in Wales to prepare for returning to work after Covid-19 lockdown.
