In the next five years, Britain needs Liberal voices standing up for our place in Europe, for our civil liberties, for human rights and for an open, tolerant and united Britain.

Will you be part of what comes next and join us today?

norman lamb 2504879bResponding to calls for a Royal Commission on the NHS from Lord Saatchi today, former Health Minister Norman Lamb said: “Liberal Democrats have long called for a cross party NHS and Care Convention, bringing together stakeholders from across the political spectrum, along with staff, patient groups and members of the public to look at how we can tackle the funding and workforce pressures on the service in the long term.

“Tribal politics has failed to provide a solution to the existential challenges facing the NHS and social care. The winter crisis of the past few weeks is unfortunate proof that the current situation is unsustainable, and these pressures will only get worse as we contend with an ageing population and rising demand for care and treatment.

“In the interim the government should also back Liberal Democrat calls to add a penny in the pound on income tax to raise a vital £6bn a year cash injection for our NHS and social care.”
