FZ - International

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic there is an unprecedented backlog in patients awaiting elective care.

While not all countries have experienced this equally, many systems and individual providers have. In this session, we will examine what they are doing to overcome these challenges and what the NHS might be able to learn from their approach.

This session forms part of the International feature zone that is supported by Healthcare UK.
