Emily's Health Survey

This survey details Local Authorities’ approaches the challenges they currently face in delivering social care. This is a very worrying time – a huge top-down reorganisation of the health service, which will involve local authorities having to take on additional responsibilities, is taking place at a time of unprecedented cuts in local authority spending power.

Emily's Speech on Public Satisfaction with the NHS

I listened with interest to the hon. Member for Southport (John Pugh), and perhaps we should also put on the record the interest shown by Labour Members. Attending the debate are my hon. Friends the Members for Easington (Grahame M. Morris), for Stalybridge and Hyde (Jonathan Reynolds), for Gateshead (Ian Mearns), for Edmonton (Mr Love), for Wansbeck (Ian Lavery), for Leyton and Wanstead, for Blaydon (Mr Anderson), for Bolton North East (Mr Crausby), and for Birmingham, Erdington (Jack Dromey), and my right hon. Friend the Member for Coatbridge, Chryston and Bellshill (Mr Clarke). I shall give an honorary mention to the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon), too.
