The NHS has been part of everyday life in the UK since 1948. Covid-19 will stand as an extraordinary period in its longer history. The interviews we are recording now with NHS staff, patients, volunteers, and carers during the crisis will capture personal experiences and reflections that will provide a unique historical footprint for informing policy and practice during the pandemic recovery period and a rich research resource for future generations.

Discover more about our current streams of work funded by the AHRC through the UKRI's Covid-19 rapid response call to develop a national collection of Covid-19 personal testimonies below.
