Watch CHSS pre-election health policy debate here!

There was a packed house at the Gulbenkian Theatre for last night’s CHSS-hosted health policy debate.

Whatever their political leanings, all who came along were clearly passionate about future health and social care services in our region, and at national level.

We are extremely grateful to all the brave Parliamentary candidates who came along to face a barrage of questions from an animated audience, on topics including funding the NHS, privatisation and mental health services.

The panel was chaired by CHSS Director Prof Stephen Peckham, and the candidates were:

• Sir Julian Brazier, Conservative 
• Rosie Duffield, Labour 
• James Flanagan, Liberal Democrat
• Henry Stanton, Green 

If you weren’t lucky enough to be there, you can watch the whole event or listen online (brought to you in collaboration with KTV and CSRfm).

There was also lots of Twitter activity during the debate and you can follow the #CHSSge17 action on Storify.

There will be more about this highly successful event in our next CHSS newsletter, out at the end of July.
