Friday June 2
Some encouraging news at the end of a quiet week - a new blood test for a wide range of cancers shows promise - and from yesterday, over a million NHS staff will receive a pay rise.
Meanwhile, a report has found that the most mature ICS, Manchester, is riven with mistrust and muddled governance and Northern ICSs still haven’t agreed balanced financial plans.
Have a good weekend.
