Register to join Episode 18 'Even more of your questions answered' on Zoom here.

Once again we bring together a panel of health experts to answer the most popular questions we have received so far throughout the RSM COVID-19 webinar series.

As we enter the third month of delivering the COVID-19 Series, there are still many questions we have been unable to answer during the regular 30-minute webinars. So to ensure we are covering the key questions being asked about COVID-19, in this 45-minute webinar Professor Sir Simon Wessely will pose the most popular questions to a panel of health experts.

Answering these questions will be Professor Martin McKee, Professor of European Public Health, Dr Alison Pittard, Dean of the Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine and Consultant in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care Medicine, and Professor Stuart Ralston, chair of the Commission on Human Medicines and Professor of Rheumatology.

This webinar will be 45 minutes long, and there will be no live Q&A - the most popular unanswered questions from previous webinars will be presented to our panel.
