Health Sec: I will adopt localised approach to NHS issues

The health secretary says she plans to adopt a "localised" and "detailed" approach to help tackle "a variety of issues" within health and social care.

Thérèse Coffey says she wishes to "work in partnership" with individual, struggling NHS trusts to tackle "a variety of issues" including backlogs and waiting times, "exacerbated" by the Covid pandemic.
