Local clinicians on the global stage for COVID-19 seminar

Teesside will be represented on the global medical stage this Friday during an online seminar discussing the response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust’s chief executive Julie Gillon and medical director Deepak Dwarakanath will join colleagues from Sweden, Australia and the USA at the ‘Relocate, Repurpose, Reorganize – The hospital response to the pandemic challenge’ webinar.

The Trust’s presentation centres on innovation, engagement and staff support during the pandemic.

Deepak said: “We’re honoured to be asked to present the work of the Trust to colleagues from around the world.

“We’ll be discussing what we’ve learned, our style and culture of leadership, our dynamic operating model, the incredible response of our intensive care unit and how it was re-calibrated to deal with COVID-19 patients. Possible future operating models, enduring leadership, empowerment and support of our staff will also be covered.

“We’re also keen to learn from our colleagues and see how they have reacted to this unprecedented situation.”

Julie and Deepak will be dialling into the seminar, which takes place on Friday 4 September from 12 – 2pm, from the University Hospital of North Tees.

The ‘Relocate, Repurpose, Reorganize – The hospital response to the pandemic challenge’ webinar is organised by the European Health Property Network and sponsored by Ramboll, walkerproject and White Arkitekter.
