Benenden health puts health on the agenda at Lib Dem Spring Conference

7th March 2014

Benenden health will tomorrow be teaming up with leading health stakeholders at the Liberal Democrat Spring Conference - to discuss how mutuals can bridge the gap between physical and mental health and build greater parity in service provision.

The mutual healthcare provider – themselves based in York where the Spring Conference will be held on 7th/8th March – will be engaging with conference attendees including the Minster for Care, Norman Lamb MP, as part of an ongoing public affairs programme.

Marc Bell, Chief Executive at benenden health said: “Health mutuals such as benenden health have a strong history of healthcare service provision. This means that mutuals can work alongside the NHS and play an important part in the future of healthcare provision in the UK.

“We’re looking forward to an interesting discussion with the Minister and other major stakeholders in the healthcare sphere. With the ever-increasing awareness of the importance of good mental health, it is essential that parity is achieved between provision for physical and mental health.”

Norman Lamb MP, Minister of State for Care and Support, said:

"I want to build a fairer society and that means providing the same quality of care for people with mental health problems as for those with a physical illness. I am interested to hear about ways in which we can get better care for all."

"Many of those who work for the NHS have great commitment to its ideals.  Healthcare should be run from the bottom up, with key decisions being made by those who are closest to the patient.   I believe that new approaches to engaging doctors, nurses, and care workers in the way our health and care system works have a crucial role to play in delivering a fairer society where everyone can access good quality care and support."

The Liberal Democrat Spring Conference is being held on the 7th to 9th March at the Barbican Centre, York.
