We discuss how vulnerable patients have been adversely affected by these covid rules and how trusts are still having to balance patient visiting with reducing the spread of covid.

Also this episode, trust leaders have spoken of fears that specialised services could become fragmented under Health Bill reforms. We cover why new delegated budgets could result in ICSs going their own way.

Featuring Hayley Kirton, Jack Serle and Annabelle Collins.
