As the countdown starts to next week's publication (Monday or Tuesday, we think) of the revised Operating Framework for 2010-11 and the NHS Confederation's agenda-setting annual conference, Health Policy Insight is running a series of policy interviews with practitioners, policymakers and influencers.
The first in the series, with NHS Confederation's acting chief executive Nigel Edwards, is here.
We hope you enjoy them.
We also strongly recommend this excellent summary article in Public Finance, by the shrewd Noel Plumridge.
This article by the BBC's Stephanie Flanders also adds a lot of value and cool good sense to the wildly overheated debate about "unaffordable" public sector pensions.
Have a good weekend.
