I believe the SHA should work closely with the labour party and its leadership in its commitment to repeal the H & S C Act and its plans for bringing physical health, mental health and social care closer together.
Our longer term aim must be to remove the purchaser/provider split to achieve greater integration between planners and providers as well as saving the hugely unnecessary costs of the commissioning process.
No financial interests.  Just keen to keep the NHS public in all respects.
