Focus Groups for Shielding Trainees (past or present)

Health Education England are trying to explore the true impact of shielding over the last two years. We are hoping to arrange focus groups, across all specialities (not just paediatrics) with trainees who have shielded (for any or some of the time), hope to explore what worked, what did not and what can be learned for the future.

We are trying not to focus on COVID-19, but create a positive legacy moving forward.

This is research and will require your consent to be involved.

If interested (whether to share experiences or get involved with the project), please email me at
