In advance of election-day a health policy debate involving local candidates will take place at the Sessions House, Christchurch Canterbury University on Thursday 28 November.

Organised and hosted by the University of Kent's Centre for Health Services Studies (CHSS) with support from the Faculty of Health and Wellbeing at Canterbury Christchurch University, the event will take place in Michael Berry Lecture Theatre 1 at 7pm. It is free and open to all. Booking is not required.

Local candidates including Rosie Duffield MP (Labour), Anna Firth (Conservative), Claire Malcomson (Liberal Democrats) and Hannah Temple (Green Party) will explain to the audience what their policy plans could mean for the future of health and social care in the UK. They will also take questions from the floor.

Stephen Peckham, Director of CHSS and Professor of Health Policy, said: 'As we know from past elections and political campaigns, voters care deeply about health and social care policies, including the future of the NHS. I would therefore encourage anyone who would like to learn more about what each party is doing in these areas to join us for what promises to be an informative event.'

CHSS, part of the School of Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research, conducts research into a wide range of health systems and health services issues at local, national and international levels. It also supports and advises health care staff to develop and undertake research projects. CHSS collaborates with a wide range of partners in Kent, the UK and in other countries to improve the links between research, policy and practice.
