This week, we take a closer look at:

  • Spare capacity in the system, and how the NHS has (so far) been able to deal with the peak of covid-19 patients;
  • Controversial death statistics, including figures from France that were misrepresented in the government’s daily press conferences;
  • How social care is struggling with the increase in patients discharged from hospital; and
  • While the head is turned, what’s happening to care for patients without coronavirus.

This week’s episode features Ben Clover, Lawrence Dunhill and Sharon Brennan, with host Annabelle Collins.
