When the COVID-19 pandemic reached the United Kingdom in early 2020, adaptive reconfigurations were rapidly implemented within health care teams, including the renal workforce. Widespread changes included increased shift patterns, redeployment of staff, and the return of individuals undertaking academic secondments to clinical work. Furthermore, vulnerable staff members were advised to “shield,” triggering a redistribution of responsibilities between those compelled to work remotely and those on the frontline. We sought to characterize the impacts of these changes on the UK renal workforce.
