Inquiry Chair meets bereaved families and relatives of care home residents
Lord Brailsford, Chair of the Scottish COVID-19 Inquiry, has undertaken an initial series of meetings with bereaved families and relatives of care home residents in Scotland.
The discussions have allowed Lord Brailsford to provide an update on the Inquiry’s progress and learn more about their experiences during the pandemic in Scotland, and how they and their relatives were impacted by the lockdowns and other restrictions, such as those in residential care settings.
Lord Brailsford said: “I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to meet bereaved families and the relatives of care home residents, and very much appreciate them sharing with me their harrowing accounts of the losses they have suffered. I have learned a great deal and their experiences will be at the heart of the Inquiry’s investigations.”
