We also talk about NHS England’s decision to start collecting race and ethnicity data when giving the covid vacation seven weeks after the programme was launched and consider the impact this could have on health inequalities.

Featuring Annabelle Collins, Nick Kituno, Jasmine Rapson and Jack Serle.
