Liz speaks in social care debate

[01/11/2017 | No comment]

On 25th October I spoke in Labour’s Opposition Day debate on social care.

Our population is ageing, more people need help and support and our care services desperately need additional money. However any political party that comes up with a viable answer can expect their plans to be destroyed by the opposing side. We are only going to make lasting improvements to our NHS and social care services if MPs work across political parties to deliver a solution. That’s why I’ve joined MPs Norman Lamb, Sarah Wollaston and other Select Committee Chairs to call on the Government to set up a cross-party commission on the future of health and social care.
