Introduction  

The COVID-19 Pandemic has had a major impact on populations around the world.

Professionals in Population and Public Health have been at the heart of the response.

In the South West, many Specialty Registrars have contributed to this response.

The case studies and reflections attached provide an insight into some of the important work that South West Public Health Registrars have led on during the last few months. 

COVID-19 has provided an important opportunity to develop skills and competencies in Health Protection, managing major incidents and effects on specific populations and health inequalities.
