Has Covid-19 changed health as we know it?

The answer is absolutely yes.

Then, what does the future hold?

Well that’s really up to you.

Let’s face the facts. The landscape has changed more in the last couple of weeks than the last 20 years.

Covid-19 has highlighted the need for long term, permanent evolution.

Now is the time for you to stand up and speak up. To have your say and drive the next phase, not only in the way we deliver healthcare but how you are supported on the frontline.

Collectively, we can influence policy makers and commercial groups and reinvent our health system to be better equipped for whatever the future holds.
