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.

The announcement by the Secretary of State of a raft of measures designed to improve the mental health of NHS staff is an important and welcome one. It is a first step in the NHS making good on the NHS Ten Year Plan's desire to see employers having "a key role to play in supporting their staff to stay well and in work.” Given the higher than average sickness rates in the NHS compared to other public sector organisations, Peter Molyneux, chair of Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, explains why it is important that the NHS sets the standard.
