A series of podcasts showcasing how our unique mix of health, social care and housing services are assisting customers across England. Find out how we're meeting the challenges of implementing innovative models of care and support and the difference they are making to customers and families.
In this episode, Dr Nicola Stefanou has a candid chat about the care system with two very special guests: Sir Norman Lamb, former minister of State and Support and Sean Duggan the Chief Executive of the NHS Confederation's Mental Health Network.
Together they examine the challenges that those with autism and/or intellectual disability and mental health challenges continue to face. This includes some focus on the continued challenges faced by the transforming care program, and they also discuss the issues surrounding the high number of people that remain living in hospitals and care homes.
In episode four, Dr Nic talks to Vic Rayner, the Chief executive of the National Care Forum. The forum represents organisations in the social care sector.
They talk about the real pressures facing the sector in a post-Covid world. They cover things like high vacancy rates and attracting new members of staff. Plus, how the public and decision-makers view the service and importantly how social care is paid for.
In this third episode Dr Nichola Stefanou talks candidly to consultant psychiatrist Dr Chris Ince about the Complex Care programme. He shares his frank and unique insights including the barriers that exist to integration, the challenges that are faced, and most importantly how we can make a difference.
