This week we examine:

  • The current covid-19 pressure on the health and care system and prospects for the next few days.
  • The tech response, including primary care, 111, outpatients, and whether relaxed information governance is here to stay.
  • The collateral damage toll of covid-19 on health — with concerns about people not accessing urgently needed healthcare, and the wider knock-on effects.

Deputy editor Dave West is joined by bureau chief James Illman and correspondents Jasmine Rapson and Jack Serle.
