Podcast Extra - Care Homes and Covid-19
Show Notes

For this special episode of the podcast, Rev'd Dr Jamie Franklin is joined by Dr Ali Haggett, academic and practitioner in the areas of mental health and well-being, and Rev'd Dr William Philip, former cardiologist and senior minister of the Tron Church, Glasow, to discuss the neglect and abuse of residents in the UK's care homes. Restriction of visitors, blanket do not resuscitate orders, exposure of the elderly to infection when the nation was told they had been put within a "protective ring", shoddy practices around medical certificates of cause of death and the redefinition of "end of life" to restrict access of loved ones at crucial moments: what does the treatment of the elderly and those who are in care reveal about the nature of society and is there anything that can be done about it?
