Covid-19 has cast a spotlight on Ireland’s health service like never before. The added pressure of a global pandemic has exposed cracks in the system that cannot be ignored. In this monthly show hosted by Yvonne Redmond, we hear untold stories and fresh perspectives from industry insiders, explore how Ireland compares to international best practices and ask when it comes to healthcare: what do we get right, get wrong and how do we close the gap?
The Covid Care podcast looks at the experiences of people who either provided care or accessed care during the Covid 19 lockdown in Ireland earlier in 2020. These episodes speak to people across Ireland, who share their stories of the realities of lockdown beyond Netflix and making banana bread. From those in direct provision, carers, sexual health services, parents, domestic violence services and more, we see how isolating and difficult lockdown was for people who were availing of care services, or who cared for others. As we face an uncertain future of further lockdowns and possible curtailment of services again, the lessons and experiences contained within these conversations are essential listening if we wish to care for vulnerable people in a holistic way.
