DBTH Annual Members Lecture 2021

Join us on 14 June when we begin our week-long lecture series ‘Reflections upon the Pandemic’.

This year’s Annual Members Lecture will focus upon COVID-19, the pandemic and our response as a Trust. During the week, we will feature sessions with a range of health professionals from within our organisation, each speaking on a specific theme of topic.

Due to the restrictions imposed as a result of the pandemic, the Annual Members Lecture will be entirely virtual this year, and you can find the schedule as below. Links will be made available at the appropriate time to allow you to either watch or listen along.
