Each week, HSJ Health Check gathers a cast from our team of expert journalists, to explain and debate the most important news issues right now in NHS policy and leadership.

You can listen above, follow us on Spotify, listen on Apple Podcasts, or other podcast platforms.

The latest episode features HSJ deputy editor Dave West, bureau chief for performance and efficiency Ben Clover, senior correspondent for performance and Brexit James Illman, and workforce correspondent Annabelle Collins.

We discuss:

  • What do the latest Brexit developments - especially Boris Johnson’s proposed deal - mean for the NHS?
  • Are the NHS and its patients starting to feel the benefit from the government’s £20.5bn funding boost from the NHS, whose first installment - a 3.4 per cent revenue unlift - kicked in in April?

The podcast will be available on Friday mornings on the hsj.co.uk website, and across the major platforms including Spotify, Apple Podcasts, or other podcast platforms.
