Play your part in protecting UK health and social care workers

Participate in the government-funded UK-REACH study to help understand why people from certain ethnic minorities are more likely to have severe COVID-19.

The GOC and the University of Leicester are running a government-funded study into the COVID-19 outcomes in people of different ethnicities working in health and social care, and how these relate to working conditions, and general health and living circumstances. 

All GOC registrants are invited to take part by completing a questionnaire [now closed] - you do not need to have had COVID-19 or work with patients directly to participate.

The findings will be used to make rapid recommendations to the Government that will aim to protect health and social care workers.
