The Health Devolution Commission
The Health Devolution Commission has been reconstituted to continue to advocate for a devolved approach to healthcare delivery and accountability and undertake an independent and cross party inquiry into the Integration and Innovation White Paper before a Bill is published and legislation is taken through Parliament.
The Commission brings together two former, Labour and Conservative, Secretary of States for Health, Andy Burnham and Stephen Dorrell, with three former Health Ministers including Norman Lamb, Alastair Burt and Phil Hope. They are joined by senior professional figures from the health, mental health, local government and third sectors.
The Commission agreed its response to the White Paper – A Glass Half Full – and is now arranging two evidence sessions.
