Health White Paper 'Liberating the NHS'

In 2010 the coalition government set out its plans for health reform in a White Paper, 'Equity and Excellence: Liberating the NHS', and a series of associated consultations.

In December 2010 it published a Command Paper that prefigured the Health and Social Care Bill 2011.

National Voices responded to these consultations in various ways, leading to our campaign on the Bill.

Below are our responses, and links to the official documents.
