National Voices joins new alliance in health and social care

National Voices has joined forces with some of the most influential bodies in health and social care to champion the transformation of support provided for people with long-term health conditions. 

National Voices responds to Health Service Journal Commission on Hospital Care For Frail Older People

Don Redding, Director of Policy at the charity coalition National Voices, says:
