Covid Conversations are a series of free, public, online events led by the NHS Voices of Covid-19 team with a panel of guest speakers discussing their experiences of the topic in question.


Supported by a grant of £1 million from UK Research and Innovation, through the Arts and Humanities Research Council, NHS Voices of Covid-19 are developing a national collection of personal testimonies and in-depth reflections around Covid-19. These will be preserved as a permanent public resource for informing policy and practice and form part of a wider British Library Covid-19 collecting initiative.


Join these us and take part in the conversation 'what should a national collection of Covid-19 personal testimonies contain?'
