The current environment is making us all look at how we can continue to operate, stay busy and take care of our patients. It will require big adjustments, some creative thinking and a bit of determination, but by working together we can all benefit.

As an important part of our community, we'd like to share with you some of our thoughts and learnings in the hope that they can help you as well.

Join some of the Axis team and guests next week as we cover a wide array of topics.

And, if you have any questions, or requests for something to be covered, please let our Managing Partner Dr Mark Fulcher know by email
