The latest issue of Healthcare Leader features an interview with NHS Providers deputy chief executive Saffron Cordery, who speaks about the challenges of being a woman in NHS leadership, preparing for winter pressures and how to make NHS staff feel appreciated and respected.

Also included is an analysis of how the new primary care commissioning landscape will work, focusing especially on how Primary Care Networks will fit inside Integrated Care Systems – not to mention where both of these fit inside the wider NHS. We also include results from the State of Primary care report, released by Healthcare Leader’s publishers Cogora, which reveals how primary care staff really feel about the sector’s situation and future prospects.

We also have advice on how to fight fraud in your trust, as well as comment pieces from the King’s Fund, an ICS lead and Diabetes UK, giving readers the chance to catch up on all elements of NHS primary care from the leaders working at the coal face.
