Chaired by NHS Nightingale Hospital London and St Bartholomew’s Hospital Chief Executive Charles Knight, this episode will cover how specialised services were maintained during the height of the pandemic, and how they will be restored in the next stages.
Consultant cardiac surgeon Stephen Edmondson and Tom Powles, Director of Barts Cancer Centre, will speak about the impact on cancer and cardiac surgery, what they learned from the experience, and how their approaches compared to other countries.
King’s College Hospital Executive Medical Director Julia Wendon will talk about increasing ICU capacity, the clinical results seen, and what hospitals might do differently in a second wave, while NHS England’s Clinical Director of London Cardiac Clinical Network Huon Gray will offer insight into the ways London organised care, how cardiology services were maintained, and what the main barriers are for restoration.
The webinar will include plenty of opportunities for questions. All views expressed in this webinar are of the speakers themselves and not of The RSM. Please note this webinar will be recorded and stored by The RSM and may be used in the future on various internet channels.
