Nigel Adams MP, Selby and Ainsty voted to support proposed NHS reforms including giving more power to GPs to commission services, strengthening the Care Quality Commission, and cutting admin costs for example by abolishing Primary Care Trusts.

The majority of MPs voted to support the Health and Social Care Bill.

The vote was on the motion:

  • notes the e-petition signed by 170,000 people calling on the Government to drop the Health and Social Care Bill; and
  • declines to support the Bill in its current form.

Parliament describes the key areas of the Bill as being[1]:

  • establishes an independent NHS Board to allocate resources and provide commissioning guidance
  • increases GPs’ powers to commission services on behalf of their patients
  • strengthens the role of the Care Quality Commission
  • develops Monitor, the body that currently regulates NHS foundation trusts, into an economic regulator to oversee aspects of access and competition in the NHS
  • cuts the number of health bodies to help meet the Government's commitment to cut NHS administration costs by a third, including abolishing Primary Care Trusts and Strategic Health Authorities.
