New webinar series aims to educate and de-mystify on hospital treatments

We are launching a series of free treatment webinars this autumn for members of the public to participate in.

The webinars launch at the beginning of October with the aim of educating the public on a variety of procedures from knee replacement to women’s health, hip replacement to weight loss surgery, and answering the questions and concerns people considering such treatments may have.

Individual webinars will be led by one of our leading Consultants who will talk about the treatments within their area of expertise, concluding with a live question and answer session.

The series launches at 7p.m. on Thursday, 1 October with a webinar on knee replacement surgery, hosted by Orthopaedic Consultant, Richard Goddard, and hospital Matron, Zoe Andrews. Members of the public can now register to join.

Rowan Connell, Medical Director said:

“The webinars have been developed through a combination of responding to what patients have asked for and close working between teams at the hospital and will help to de-mystify and educate patients on a number of popular treatments. The format will see our Consultant present on their specific treatment area followed by a question and answer session.”

“While Benenden Hospital is Covid-19 free, we are conscious of the continuing need to keep patients safe, and while we would normally see patients face-to-face, the technology enables us to meet changing patient needs by bringing the sessions into their homes. We are also playing our part in social distancing as the webinars removes the need for people to arrange an appointment or travel to the hospital to find out about the treatments we offer, “said Rowan Connell.

In addition to the public webinars, Benenden Hospital has also launched a series of treatment webinars for GPs across the region. These will provide participating GPs with an opportunity to enhance their own continued learning, with each of the events they “attend” counting towards personal development targets. 

“Supporting GPs at this challenging time and reducing the amount of time they need to spend away from patients for training purposes is vital,” said Rowan Connell.
