COVID-19: Online talk and Q&A with Dr Phillip Lee

COVID-19: Did We Fail To Prepare? What Lessons Can We Learn? Your Chance to Meet Dr Phillip Lee

Dr Phillip Lee

In 2019, Dr Lee crossed the floor of the House of Commons from the Conservatives to the Liberal Democrats, bringing the government's working majority at the time to an end.

Dr Lee participated in a 2016 government exercise that tested the UK's pandemic preparedness. It found that there was not nearly enough equipment in the NHS to cope with the anticipated crisis. You can read more about that exercise here. Dr Lee will be discussing how we failed to prepare, and the lessons that need to be learnt going forward. Plus, we'll have time for a Q&A and discussion.
