What does “Global Britain” mean and what should it signify in a healthcare context? A panel of experts debates this question and considered:
- The upcoming G7 Summit – The Government has outlined four healthcare priorities for the UK G7 Presidency (AMR, health security, digital and clinical trials). Are these the right ones?
- The future of the World Health Organisation – How will the pandemic change the role of the WHO? Is there a need for wholesale reform? What role might the UK play in the light of the Government’s recent pledge to increase its WHO contributions?
- Future healthcare alliances – What are the future alliances which the UK should be looking to form? How can it best continue to fulfil its international healthcare obligations?
