Episode 40,  May 25, 2022, 11:01 PM

This second episode from our Providers Deliver season focuses on tackling mental health backlogs in the NHS. We begin by hearing from Rod Booth, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust director of performance, Neil Balmer, programme manager of South London Listens, and Albinia Stanley, community organiser in Southwark and Peckham, as they talk about how their Trust works with local partners.

Kelly Barker, Bradford District Care NHS Trust general manager for mental health services, and Helen Davey, Mind Bradford chief executive, share the pressures they have faced and how they have been working with voluntary and community organisations to better meet growing demand for the area’s adult community.

We also hear Sian Wimbury, Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust deputy chief operating officer, and Jane Arands, strategic lead, who share their innovative ways of working collaboratively with other mental health trusts and private sector providers in the area through the north west bed bureau.
