St Mark's - The National Bowel Hospital begins a series of brand new FREE webinars and online discussion forums, inviting the colorectal GI community to an interactive and engaging hour of presentations, panel discussions, live polling and Q&A.

What are the commonalities and differences between London and New York - two cities massively impacted. How were services managed and what was the impact on patients?

Is there a consensus for patient pathways created in the immediate aftermath?

Mitigating risks for colorectal cancer patients. Have we agreed our treatment modalities?

What next? Will there be a new normal for colorectal cancer surgery and what is an acceptable level of patient care?

CPD points applied for.

The meeting will include live, interactive polling that all attendees are encouraged to take part in. To do so, please download the app on your iPhone or Android in advance. You will be given further instructions on how to access the polls at the start of the meeting.

Please register for this event
