The Secretary of State for Health is addressing the Confed17 NHS Conference. The NHS Confederation is a group which represents some 85% of NHS providers and commissioners.
He is scheduled to speak at 11.45 am although we are told he will appear at 10am (but that may change).
So people from various NHS activist groups, community groups and trade unions will be there to welcome him from 07.30am outside the venue. Others will be at the venue with banners and loud voices from 10.00am. Please come along if you can – if you can’t make it for 7.30 am please come along later at 10.00 am
Why not go along and let him know what you think about our NHS and about his plans for it – meet up outside the Arena!!!
For information the NHS Confederation describes itself as “the only membership body that brings together and speaks on behalf of all organisations that plan, commission and provide NHS services. Members are drawn from every part of the health and care system and join 560+ organisations connected to the NHS Confederation”.
