BHRS Webinar: Living with COVID – challenges & benefits of changes

The BHRS will be holding a webinar next week which will look at the recent experience of COVID-19, and how we move forward with cardiology / cardiac surgery whilst living with COVID-19. In addition, there have been enormous delivery of care changes which largely have been beneficial for patients and staff, and the webinar will discuss the benefits and the challenges that remain. We have an exciting, eclectic mix of speakers and chairs with international insight, who will deliver didactic practical brief talks.  So please watch this space for details of how this can be accessed.
