I received this link today from one of AMRC’s partner organisations, National Voices. It will take you to the text of the first major speech by Andrew Lansley MP, Secretary of State for Health.
Given the audience of National Voices members and panelists, LINks members and Patients Association members it understandably focuses on the patient agenda. But I also think it comes across as a very personal piece in many ways. Would be interesting to hear from anybody was there ass to whether it came across like this and what was said during the Q&A.
The heavy slant on information and transparency is also interesting.
Word is that there will be a Health White Paper in very early July and that research will be in it.
While I am at it, I went to the opening of the new exhibition, ‘Skin,’ at the Wellcome Collection in London last night. Eclectic, interesting, well worth a visit. And it’s free. So if you can’t get to the Cheltenham Science Festival and are stuck in London this weekend, pop along.
