Behind the Headlines
Managing Covid-19 in Torbay
Led by Dr Helen Waters
Beyond the news and the science, what has it been like to work in healthcare during the Covid-19 pandemic?
Our host speaker, Helen Waters, works as a consultant in Acute Medicine at Torbay Hospital.
She has worked both at the front door, managing emergency medical cases, and on the Covid-19 ward.
However, she is just one very small part of a multi-disciplinary team who are, in turn, part of a huge healthcare effort across our local area.
Helen has brought together a varied group of speakers who who will talk about the challenges they faced, the new situations they navigated and the positives that have resulted from these unique times.
What was it like to graduate from medical school and start work during the pandemic?
What did it feel like to work in our local Nightingale hospital?
How do you support and train a team when no-one is an expert?
What was it like to be a patient with Covid?
How do we embed the best of our Covid survival strategies?
Join us to hear personal experiences and reflections.
The presentation and discussion will be held via Zoom.
