We discuss the NHS’ performance against emergency, elective and cancer care targets with new figures this week showing performance is worsening despite efforts to reverse this. We also hear about national leaders’ concerns that long waiting times are creating a worrying shift in attitude from the public, and examine an unusual financial dispute between two NHS bodies which harks back to the days of the internal market. 

Featuring Nick Carding, Ben Clover and James Illman.
