In this episode of BLMK Health Conversation On… we are looking at some of the big considerations as we enter the winter months.

BLMK Podcast

We discuss all the good work we are doing to prepare for winter given the pressure the NHS is under, and what advice we can give to people. 

Host Felicity Cox is joined by two very special guests: 

  • Dr Tayo Kufeji – a local GP at Newport Pagnell Medical Centre, Clinical Director, The Bridge PCN MK and Director of Clinical Transformation (MK).   
  • Kate Walker, Director of Adults’ Services at Bedford Borough Council
