What insights does a history of working in military healthcare bring? How do we cut back on readmissions to hospital after time spent in the intensive care unit? How serious an issue is 'burn out' within healthcare? How did standardisation help when designing an award winning patient transfer bag? What's the best way to transfer a patient from ward to ward or from institution to institution? How do we handle data during this period? What do we think about remote supervision and monitoring? Could a dedicated transfer team be useful? Could a new anaesthesia drug be on the way for the NHS soon? How can training in ultrasound be improved? And lastly, will improvements in artificial intelligence ultimately cost us our jobs?

Recorded live at the Association of Anaesthetists' Winter Scientific Meeting 2020, from The Queen Elizabeth II Centre, London, UK.
