The Demand and Capacity Programme will be hosting a series of four webinars over November and December to support staff in cancer services to apply demand and capacity modelling in the Covid-19 recovery phase. Colleagues undertaking recovering planning for cancer services may have questions around how we model capacity and plan to ensure the safety of our patients accessing these services in the coming weeks, month and years.
Please register with your NHS email address to secure your place on the webinars. Joining details will be emailed to you on the day before each session.
