    2020 was an eye-opener for most healthcare systems around the globe. Fighting against the pandemic required new types of skills, leadership and organisation, and new types of support, practices and supply systems. Everything at every level, from global to the most local, has changed and will never be the same. It is the ‘new normal’. As such, 2021 will be the year to prove whether we have learnt...
