Core participants and interested parties are invited to contribute to the UK Covid-19 inquiry, which has turned to healthcare systems.

Module 3 of the inquiry will look at healthcare-related inequalities in sectors including primary care, the impact of the pandemic on doctors, nurses and other healthcare staff, infection control, shielding and the impact on the clinically vulnerable.

The application process to become a core participant for Module 3 will close on 5 December at 5pm, with detail set out in the core participant application protocol.

Core participants will be those with a significant interest in this section of the inquiry.

In the past the DDA has criticised dispensing fee cuts prompted by increased dispensing volumes during Covid.
