The recovery of cancer surgery during COVID-19

11th May 2020


Following the highly successful Cancer Surgery and COVID-19: Risks and Benefits webinar on 20th April, the pandemic has moved on and much more experience of surgery during the outbreak is emerging. There are still major differences in management and treatment across the UK based on resource and the level of the epidemic.

This webinar will explore the recovery phase for patients requiring cancer surgery, the timeliness of the treatment and the appropriateness of the hub within the institution.
