In this piece we look at how Australia is dealing with the COVID 19 crisis. What restrictions are being placed upon people and how strict are they? How does “the father of perioperative medicine” see the world which is now being asked to face one of its most urgent medical emergencies? Has the time come to honour ‘the whole team’ in the institutions where we work? How can medics help to rebuild our societies after the already devastating consequences of a global pandemic?

Presented by Desiree Chappell with her guest Ross Kerridge, Senior Staff Specialist Anaesthetist Clinician at the John Hunter Hospital, Newcastle, Australia and Associate Professor at the University of Newcastle.
