In this episode we kick-start our brand new Providers Deliver series, focusing on setting the scene for the episodes ahead and providing background and context to the range of care backlogs that the NHS is currently facing.
We hear from Anna Quigley, Ipsos research director, as she shares her latest insights on the impact of the pandemic on levels of public support for the NHS. Dr Bola Owolabi, NHS England and NHS Improvement director of health inequalities, joins us to reflect on the way the pandemic has exacerbated health inequalities and the importance of the NHS recovering services in an inclusive way.
We also hear from Miriam Deakin, NHS Providers director of policy and strategy, and Ella Fuller, NHS Providers policy advisor who explain between them the depth and breadth of care backlogs across the NHS and the impact of these on patients, their families and carers, NHS staff, and the wider system.
