Prof. Tom Shakespeare

Prof. Tom Shakespeare will summarise the findings of his current UKRI-funded study on the experiences of UK disabled people in England and Scotland during the Covid-19 pandemic. Disabled people have experienced a tripe jeopardy: 1. Greater risk of contracting or dying from the virus 2. Postponement or cancellation of regular health and rehabilitation appointments 3. Exclusion from society as a result of shielding, social distancing and failure of social responses
