Dame Jackie Daniel and Lyn Simpson are joint chairs of the North East and North Cumbria Provider Collaborative. The Collaborative includes ambulance, hospital/community and mental health trusts across the region who have come
together to share their expertise and improve access to services.
Dame Jackie Daniel said: “Although we managed to maintain a significant amount of activity during the pandemic - a testament to our teams and the strength of joint working across the region - we cannot underestimate the challenges that lie ahead or indeed the personal impact for those patients, and their families, where treatment has been delayed.
