Why do the public oppose changes to the NHS? In this podcast, Jeremy Taylor, chief executive of National Voices, shares his view, providing insight on what healthcare leaders can do to build trust and collaborate with communities.

The conversation, led by STP leader and South West Yorkshire Partnership chief Rob Webster, explores arguments of a ‘paternalistic’ and ‘technocratic’ NHS, considers progress on public engagement and discusses why talk of transformation must be a two-way street, not a PR exercise. 

Featuring practical pointers for NHS leaders and clear asks of political leaders, the podcast provides food for thought for changemakers across the country.
