The coronavirus pandemic has affected every aspect of life from schooling, to the economy, to work and travel – and of course, health.

Thousands of people have been physically and mentally affected while the healthcare sector itself has been placed under huge strain.

In the latest episode of MetCast, academics from Manchester Metropolitan University reflect on the impact of COVID-19 on nursing, on our mental health and on mental health services, and within social care.

We also hear about life on the frontline from a student nurse, who was one of the 300 student nurses from Manchester Metropolitan who stepped up to help in hospitals during the peak of the pandemic earlier this year.
