What is it about?

COVID19 brought about many changes to the way a hospital runs. In this opinion piece we discuss the changes that happened in our local unit, through the experience of a doctor in training. We discuss what was learned from other countries' experiences to improve our own practice. We explore the treatments which were tried, and those which were found to be most effective. We also draw parallels with historical disease outbreaks.

Writing this article provided a welcome pause and reflection on a difficult year. I hope it provokes thoughts and conversation amongst others.
