We also turn again to integrated care systems, and this time focus on why, in some areas, a power struggle could emerge between “place” and the system-wide leadership.

Also, an update on two-year waiters in the NHS, a closer look at the trusts with the longest backlogs and why, for some, key performance targets will likely be missed.

Featuring Annabelle Collins, Lawrence Dunhill and James Illman.
