Question for Department of Health and Social Care

UIN 59534, tabled on 15 June 2020

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, for what reasons responses from the stakeholders and community engagement consultation process were removed from Public Health England’s report entitled Disparities in the risk and outcomes of covid-1’ before publication.

Answered on

1 July 2020

No stakeholder views were removed from Public Health England’s epidemiological report entitled ‘COVID-19: review of disparities in risks and outcomes’, published on 2 June 2020.

Alongside the epidemiological review, Professor Fenton undertook a rapid evidence review and external stakeholder engagement with a significant number of individuals and organisations within the black, Asian and minority ethnic community, to hear their views, concerns and ideas about the impact of COVID-19 on their communities. The results of that work have now been published and will inform the Government’s next steps being taken forward by the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Equalities (Kemi Badenoch MP).
