#BGSFairCare: Protecting older people in the second wave
There is no doubt that in the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, mistakes were made and older people were disproportionately impacted. As the second wave takes hold and is compounded with the usual winter pressures, it is critical that all involved with making decisions about the care of older people learn from the first wave.
We have written to the Health Ministers in each of the four nations of the UK, asking them to take action to protect older people over the coming months - but we need your help to get their attention.
Please write to your elected officials and ask them to contact the Ministers on your behalf. Together we can make Ministers listen to our concerns and ensure that older people are not neglected through the second wave.
