Simon Parsons, Divisional Director of Surgery at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust, joins Tom Clarke (Director, Mtech Access) to discuss how decisions, such as the postponement of non-urgent elective surgery, are made, the impact this has on patients and staff, and how the NHS might adapt to provide care for these patients.
