Blog: The King’s Fund – Recovery and then renewal: the innovation imperative for health and care

“When the pandemic eases what will happen to the care workers, ambulance staff, GPs, community nurses, acute and mental health staff, including porters and managers who have been on the front line of the crisis? There will be a huge number of people waiting for treatment but the context will be reduced staff numbers through sickness, exhaustion and the ‘moral injury’ of not being able to provide the care they wanted to. What can be done to help staff hollowed out by witnessing so much suffering, fear and high levels of death?”

In this article, Suzie and Michael lay out the reality of stress and the impact of the ongoing pandemic and share their insights as to  how and why leaders need to find the courage to decide to make health and care a space for innovation as we emerge from the worst of the pandemic.
