Someone who is clearly not struggling is Paul Burstow, former care minister and, until earlier this year, MP for Sutton and Cheam.
On Thursday 19 November he is giving his inaugural lecture as Professor of Health and Social Care in the division of Health Services Research and Management in the School of Health Sciences, City University London.
He will be speaking on "A psychologically minded NHS: Key to a collaborative and sustainable NHS?"
The City University page for the event says:
In his inaugural lecture, Paul Burstow Professor of Health and Social Sciences will outline how the NHS is facing huge financial and workforce challenges against a background of rising and changing demand.
NHS England’s Five Year Forward View makes the case for changing models of care to meet the 21st century health care challenges of multiple long term physical and mental health conditions, frailty and ageing. Incorporating a psychosocial perspective into the design and delivery and management of all healthcare services can make a significant contribution to meeting the £22 billion productivity challenge.
If the NHS is to celebrate its 100th birthday its leader will have to move at pace, operate collaboratively and be driven by a common purpose. What would a psychologically minded NHS look and feel like, how would the adoption of a psychosocial approach help the NHS meet the challenges it faces?This is a free event, but you are asked to book a place via that page.
