When noro and flu visit early
Listen to the HSJ Health Check podcast — this week we cover the national workforce modelling as revealed by HSJ, norovirus and the flu turn up early, and a Midlands trust lands an “outstanding” rating. The latest episode features HSJ deputy editor Dave West, bureau chief for performance and efficiency Ben Clover, senior correspondent for performance and Brexit James Illman, and workforce correspondent Annabelle Collins. We discuss: What do we learn from      the leaked national nursing workforce modelling revealed this week by      Annabelle? How’s winter shaping up      for the NHS, and vice versa? What’s unusual about      South Warwickshire Foundation Trust’s new “outstanding” rating? Got feedback or something you would like us to discuss?
