NHS Reforms — Market Based Approach — 9 May 2011 at 18:28

Jamie Reed MP, Copeland voted for a fundamental change to the Government's plans for NHS reforms and to drop the proposed market-based approach.

The majority of MPs voted against fundamentally changing the Government's plans for NHS reforms including dropping the proposed market-based approach.

The text of the rejected motion read:

  • That this House
  • notes the growing concerns over the Government’s handling of the NHS and the effect its policies are having on hospitals and patient care; and
  • calls on the Government to uphold the Coalition Agreement[1] promise to stop the top-down reorganisations of the NHS which have got in the way of patient care, to use the present pause in the progress of the Health and Social Care Bill[2] to make fundamental changes, including dropping the damaging and unjustified market-based approach, and to concentrate efforts instead on achieving sound efficiencies, better clinical quality and improved integration of services.
