The 2015 Challenge Manifesto: a time for action


11 / 09 / 2014

The 2015 General Election comes at a critical time for health and care services. The pressures on the whole system have never been greater.

This manifesto sets out what we believe are the essential components of a new health and care system and how they might look and be experienced by people using and working in health and care, and the wider public. It also sets out some shared ‘asks’ of politicians and policymakers that are essential to achieve this vision.

The years beyond the 2015 election must be a historical turning point in the way we keep people well and how we care for people who need care.

But if the way we support healthy lives and provide care now is inadequate, what does the high-quality, compassionate health and care service we wish for ourselves and our loved ones in the future look like, and how are the many willing people trying to shape a better future going to know what they are working towards?

This manifesto is a contribution from us all to making that happen.
