Shadow Health Secretary, Rt Hon Andy Burnham MP, joined us at our fringe event at the 2014 Labour Party Conference in Manchester.

The government faced a small window of opportunity after the 2015 general election to confront the challenges facing the health and care system. The King's Fund, the NHS Confederation and the Local Government Association hosted these lively and thought-provoking debates about the solutions needed to meet the challenges.

The panellists were:

  • 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
