COVID-19 has had devastating effects worldwide. The greatest impact on health outcomes has been on people over 65 years, and those with underlying health conditions. The UK sought to mitigate the effects of the pandemic by restricting population movement and prioritising COVID-19 in the health care system. These measures were crucial in slowing disease transmission, reducing burden on the NHS and reducing virus-related mortality. However, disruption in routine health and social care and increased social isolation will have a longer-term effects.

As a team we wish to investigate the impact of the ‘lockdown’ on the health and well-being of older people in Wales. Our research project will encompass four interlinked work packages to seek to answer this important question. We will guide you through the research project and showcase how our differing areas of expertise will help to answer this research question using a multi-disciplinary approach.
