Terms of Reference

The Inquiry held a public consultation on its draft Terms of Reference in Spring 2022. This gave people the chance to have their say on the topics the Inquiry covers, and how it should go about its work. During the consultation, the Inquiry team met over 150 bereaved families across the UK, and representatives from many different sectors such as charities, unions, faith groups, education and healthcare. In total we received over 20,000 responses.

This feedback shaped the Inquiry Chair Baroness Hallett’s recommendations to the Prime Minister on the Terms of Reference. 

The Inquiry has now received its final Terms of Reference, which set out the topics of the Inquiry’s investigations into the UK’s pandemic response.
