Covid-19 has had a devastating impact on access to non-Covid care and treatment. We know there are over a million extra patients awaiting hospital treatment. The NHS has issued guidance for ‘accelerating the return to near-normal levels of non-Covid health services, making full use of the capacity available in the ‘window of opportunity’ between now and winter.’
In this webinar we will be discussing these issues with front-line clinicians and patient safety experts.
