About this event

Shadow Health Secretary, Rt Hon Andy Burnham MP, will join us at our fringe event at the Labour Party Conference in Manchester.

The next government will have a small window of opportunity after the general election to confront the challenges facing the health and care system, so what changes are needed? The King's Fund, the NHS Confederation and the Local Government Association are hosting what promises to be a lively and thought-provoking debate about the solutions needed to meet the challenges ahead.

The panellists are:

  • Rt Hon Andy Burnham MP, Shadow Health Secretary
  • Jackie Ashley, The Guardian (chair)
  • Rob Webster, Chief Executive, NHS Confederation
  • Richard Humphries, Assistant Director of Policy, The King's Fund
  • Councillor Linda Thomas, Vice-Chair, Community Wellbeing Board, Local Government Association
