In conversation with... John Short and Andrew Foster

John Short and Andrew Foster

14 / 01 / 2016

The NHS Confederation, NHS Providers, NHSCC and the LGA are currently working together to help spread the learning from the Vanguard programme more widely across the health and care sector.

As part of this work, we have interviewed a range of Vanguards about the opportunities and challenges involved in establishing new models of care in local areas.

The second of these interviews is with John Short, chief executive, Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust and Andrew Foster, chief executive of Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust. During the conversation, led by Saffron Cordery from NHS Providers, they provide an insight into the motivations for an integrated approach to urgent and emergency care, the changes they want to deliver for their communities as part of this work, and discuss the key roles that each part of the system plays in making this happen.
