Matthew Kershaw: When we talk about a backlog it’s patients, it’s people who are waiting!

In this episode Matthew Kershaw, chief executive of Croydon Health Services NHS Trust, talks to Matthew Taylor about the challenges of elective recovery in south-west London. Exploring the steps the area is taking, the place-based leader for health shares why, at the height of the pandemic, local partners took the radical decision to set up a hospital within a hospital to continue elective care. The discussion forms part of our new Integration in Action series, a collection of webinars, reports and podcasts that each month reflects a different aspect of integrated care making a difference on the ground.
