“How COVID-19 changed my life: a personal and professional view”


A review of the immediate and prolonged response to COVID-19 in Tayside, including the direct and indirect consequences of the pandemic.  Some discussion of the treatments used and the evidence base developed, including the use of vaccines. I will also reflect on my own illness with COVID-19, and the effects of ‘Long-COVID” I have experienced.

Learning Objectives:

  • To understand the NHS in Scotland’s pandemic response at a local and national level
  • To have knowledge of the evidence base for the treatments and vaccinations for COVID-19
  • To understand the implications for dentists of Long-COVID, and how the wider medical team will manage it
