Dr Ron Singer is the vice-president of Doctors in Unite and was the chair during its centenary in 2014. He joins the podcast today to talk about the utility of trade union membership during the coronavirus pandemic.
Today we’re joined by public health and medical sociology professor David Blane, to discuss the rise in the state pension age, the effect of work in later life on health, and the changing perceptions of key workers since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.
Over the next few weeks we’ll be sharing a new podcast with you, where we’ll discuss the coronavirus pandemic, the government’s response, and what might happen next. We’ll interview doctors and senior health figures, and try to gain some insight into this unprecedented situation.
