Recorded on the eve of the launch of NHS England’s Five Year Forward View and some six months away from the election, Stephen Dalton, chief executive of the Mental Health Network, interviews Care and Support Minister Norman Lamb MP in the first of a series of In Conversation pieces with key players with influence in the mental health sector.

What emerges is a fascinating and intensely personal insight into the frustrations of government. Stephen challenges the Minister on his track record, how he squares his commitment to the mental health cause with real term NHS and local authority cuts, introduction of bedroom tax and more, all on his watch.
