Integrating health and social care is a famously difficult task. Now, it seems, Boris Johnson himself wants to clarify local accountability for this. We discuss the implications of this latest intervention.   

We also consider what the terms of reference for the Messenger Review mean for the NHS leadership community, and we explore the strange story of a hospital charity which is not distributing much of the money it has raised.  

Featuring Nick Carding, Dave West and Alison Moore.
