Productivity in healthcare during the COVID-19 pandemic

In this episode, host Professor Bart van Ark talks to Professor Diane Coyle and Kaya M. Dreesbeimdiek from the University of Cambridge who co-authored a recent paper on productivity in the National Health Service during the Covid-19 pandemic, with insight from Dr. Jennifer Dixon, chief executive of The Health Foundation.
