We also discuss some very large pressing issues on the health service’s plate now the vote is out the way – including winter, Brexit, the NHS People Plan, implementing the NHS long-term plan, and preparing for 2020-21.

This week we hear from HSJ deputy editor Dave West, senior correspondent for performance and Brexit James Illman, and workforce correspondent Annabelle Collins.

You can listen above, on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and all the other popular podcast platforms.
