2015 Challenge Declaration

SAVE ITEM

06 / 05 / 2014

The NHS is rightly heralded as one of our national treasures. It now faces the most challenging set of circumstances since it began. We must act now to meet the challenges it faces if we are to secure a sustainable NHS, transformed to meet the needs of people in the 21st Century.

The 2015 Challenge is being led by the NHS Confederation working with a wider group of other national representative bodies.

As national organisations representing health and care charities, communities, staff and leaders across the health, care and wellbeing system, we have come together to highlight the scale and nature of the challenge, make the case for change and lead a serious debate of the solutions with each other, with politicians and with the public.

We are calling for a positive, shared vision for the future. This vision must encapsulate the needs, assets and wishes of the people using the health and care system, and the values of the people working in it.

Change must be both local and national. Public and staff concerns about change must be addressed by building confidence in the future, rooted in clear accountability and responsibility.

This document is our coalition’s analysis of the challenges that must be faced at the 2015 general election and beyond. It is a statement we hope the political parties will acknowledge and use as a framework against which they finalise manifesto and subsequent policy proposals.
