We get into some of the challenges faced by the health secretary, how to balance ambition with NHS recovery and why the NHS doesn’t want to go back to how things were before covid hit.

This week Annabelle and Dave are joined by Helen Buckingham, director of strategy at the Nuffield Trust, and Richard Sloggett, programme director of the Future Health Research Centre.
