National Voices responds to Andy Burnham’s Labour Conference Speech

National Voices, the health and social care charity coalition, has responded to Andy Burnham’s speech on health and social care as follows. 

National Voices’ Director of Policy, Don Redding, said: 

“We welcome much of Andy Burnham’s speech including the emphasis on care coordination and care that works around the individual and family. We do have some concerns that, under Labour’s vision, it appears that this will be hospital-led and NHS dominated. Health and wellbeing are produced by many local actors and we also need national government to enable local leaders to collaborate on reshaping services, including patient and community leaders. 

National Voices responds to Ed Miliband's Labour Conference Speech

National Voices, the health and social care charity coalition, today welcomed Ed Miliband’s commitment of more funds for the NHS, while calling for more detail on the way this money will be tied to services that deliver person centred care. 

At the Labour Party Conference, Ed Miliband set out a vision for a £2.5bn “time to care” fund which could support 20,000 more nurses, 8,000 more GPs, 5,000 more care workers and 3,000 more midwives.
