This briefing is dedicated to thanking brilliant people all over the world who are caring for others during the coronavirus pandemic. In recognition of the fantastic work of the NHS in the UK we wanted to share some insights from those Brilliant Minds we know, who are working on the front line.

Join Professor Martin Elliott as he explains how perpetual improvement comes from data transparency and how life in medicine is a continuous negotiation with risk. Listen to Iain Hennessey explain how successful surgeons differentiate between normal and subconscious fear. Learn from Dr Neslyn Watson-Druee as she explains how doing the right thing can sometimes mean that you won’t be liked by everyone. And finally, gain inspiration from Professor Elaine Fox as she explains that giving yourself a bit more control in your everyday life can result in a more optimistic outlook.

Finally, don’t forget to show your appreciation for doctors, nurses, other healthcare professionals and all of our carers across the country who dedicate their lives for others at 8pm tonight by ‘Clapping for our Carers’.
