#ProtectNHSworkers

MPs pledge to ensure the protection of healthcare workers throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

More than 620 UK health and social care workers have died as a consequence of COVID-19. We have asked MPs to come together and take immediate action to protect frontline workers and the services they deliver to the public. Over 42,000 lives have already been lost in the UK. As we approach winter, we must act to safeguard the lives of our healthcare workers, so that they can continue caring for the public.

New, ring-fenced funding should be allocated from central government sources to achieve these aims. 

As a UK parliamentarian, I pledge to support EveryDoctor in achieving the following: 

  1. Priority access to testing for health and social care workers and their household members, within 24 hours of onset of symptoms. 
  2. PPE for all health and social care workers in line with World Health Organisation standards. 
  3. A fair death-in-service package for all bereaved families of health and social care workers who have tragically died of COVID-19 in the line of their work. 
  4. Fair sick and isolation pay arrangements for all health and social care workers, including temporary and locum staff. 
  5. Provision of accommodation for health and social care workers living with vulnerable people.
