The NHS is set to be one of most important issues during the general election campaign. Hear what the political parties have to say about the future of the health and care sector at our event in Manchester.
We are bringing together local politicians to share their view and debate with health and care leaders from across the NHS Confederation and its networks – NHS Clinical Commissioners, NHS Partners Network and the Mental Health Network.
Why should I attend?
You will have the opportunity to put your burning questions directly to local candidates about the pressing regional and national health and care issues.
It will also be your chance to hear the five major parties (Conservative, Labour, Lib Dem, UKIP and Green) outline their party’s health and care manifesto commitments, with a chance to find out more about what they would do for the NHS.
Who will I hear from?
We are inviting candidates that have a particular interest in healthcare policy that are standing locally for election in the regions surrounding and including Bristol, Birmingham, Leeds and Manchester.
We will confirm candidates for the hustings soon, once we have a full cadre of panellists.
The debates will take the form of a panel discussion with candidates from the five major parties, chaired by NHS Confederation chief executive Niall Dickson.
How can I book my place?
