Opposition Day — [Un-alloted Half Day] — Future of the NHS — 9 May 2011 at 18:28
Nick Herbert MP, Arundel and South Downs voted with the majority (No).
I beg to move,
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 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 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.
