What about the healthcare workers who died in the pandemic, and the cases of prolonged illness after Covid-19? 

It is a very complex situation. The health service needs a lot of support (financial and moral etc. in order to continue to deliver a service without any disruption at such a difficult time.

It certainly is, and I agree about the support. I think disruption is inevitable for a long while yet - how to manage that and the safety of our teams whilst not causing harm too is going to be the great challenge here (and potentially as big a challenge as the start of the pandemic, I think).
