Liz helps launch Independent Commission on Whole Person Care

[24/04/2013 | No comment]

Too often patients and their families struggle with all the different NHS and social care services to get the help they desperately need. This isn’t good for them, and it wastes taxpayers’ money too if people end up having to use more expensive hospital or residential care.

People want services and support that fits around their lives, and which helps them stay healthy and living independently in their own homes wherever possible. This is what Labour’s vision of “Whole Person Care” is all about.

On Monday 22nd April, Ed Miliband, Andy Burnham and I launched a new Independent Commission on Whole Person Care to look at how we make our vision a reality.

It is being chaired by Sir John Oldham, one of the country’s leading experts on integrating care. You can read more about the Commision and its work here, here and here.
