Digital ThinkIn – What can't we afford to treat anymore?

Monday 29 June 2020

Duration: 6:30PM - 7:30PM

Status: Completed

To protect its core principle of “free at the point of need”, will the NHS be forced to reconsider what “need” means in the wake of C19? The government’s blank cheque won’t last forever. As economic reality bites and ‘normal service’ gradually resumes – from non-emergency and elective surgeries to fertility treatment – clinicians and managers may find themselves facing yet more hard choices. Who will navigate the strategic, ethical and moral maze of rebuilding a health service that is affordable, effective – and ready for the next pandemic?
