The Providers Podcast is brought to you by NHS Providers. NHS Providers is the membership organisation for the NHS hospital, mental health, community and ambulance services that treat patients and service users in the NHS. We help those NHS foundation trusts and trusts to deliver high-quality, patient-focused care by enabling them to learn from each other, acting as their public voice and helping shape the system in which they operate.
Hear the latest updates the NHS and health care sector are facing from leading figures and frontline staff.

Winter Watch: Breaking The Ice
Welcome to The Provider Podcast from NHS Providers. Adam Brimelow, NHS Providers director of communications leads us through our three part podcast series, alongside our NHS Winter Watch campaign, for winter 2020-21.
In this live virtual recording, we manage to have a quick chat with experts from our very own NHS Providers analysis team, Claire Helm NHS Providers senior analysis manager and Julian Russell NHS Providers senior research analyst, about what trusts can expect over the coming winter months, the impact of COVID-19 and statistics from our first week of #NHSWinterWatch.

Digital Boards: What does a new era of digital leadership mean?

Changing mindsets: Confronting white privilege in the NHS
In this episode, we look back on our conference session on white privilege in the NHS and how change will need to be led from the top. In this discussion we explore how trust leaders are challenging themselves and their organisations to identify and tackle race inequality, reflecting on the real harm it causes to staff and patients, and identifying the steps needed to make the NHS anti-racist.
NHS communicators: In the eye of the storm
On this panel, we welcomed our communications network chair Ross Wigham, also deputy director of communications at Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, as chair of the panel. The panel includes Michael Carden, head of media and corporate communications at Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust, Emma Casteleijn, director of communications and engagement at University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust, Julie Treharne head of communications and engagement of North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust, and Dan Charlton, director of communications at Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.
