At a time when the healthcare world is hugely concerned over the human impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, it is important we do not lose sight of other ‘emergencies'. The climate emergency continues, and the pandemic has highlighted our reliance on the supply of disposable equipment. It remains the right time to consider what we should do next, now that the message about the contribution from inhaled agents to global warming has been heard. This re-arranged seminar is for anyone considering how they and their department can help.

Login will be available from 09:15, but the broadcast will not start until 09:30. 

This online seminar is kindly sponsored by:
