Radical Reformers ep.29: Jo Pritchard, Director health and social care, SEUK
This episode is with Jo Pritchard OBE. Jo is Director of health and social care at Social Enterprise UK. Before that she founded Central Surrey Health, one of the very first public service mutuals to “spin out” of the public sector back in 2006.
This is a very wide ranging and hugely informative conversation starting with the journey towards setting up Central Surrey Health - why employee ownership was a good thing and why Jo thinks it’s still a fantastic model for public services.
We also discuss the current health and social care reforms - what do they mean for the system and are the reforms going to be positive for service users and staff?
We also discuss social value, particularly when the public sector is procuring services, and also what it is to be a public service entrepreneur!
I hope you enjoy it.
