Posted on 20th January 2016 at 10:53
Following pressure from a group of health and social care organisations, a cross-party commission to review the future funding and structure of health and care services in England has been proposed in the House of Commons.
Former care minister Norman Lamb has tabled a bill calling for a cross-party commission to review the future of health and social care in England, which is supported by two former health secretaries, Conservative minister Stephen Dorrell and Labour minister Alan Milburn. The bill was approved for a second reading by the House of Commons on 8 January and is expected to have its second reading debate on 11 March 2016.
