mnmlist: Liz Kendall MP talks to Notts Fabians #nfhealth

The Liz Kendall event tonight was a great success. We were delighted to have Liz talk to us about the Coalition’s changes to health and social care, and how Labour should respond, and would like to thank her for coming.

The event was brilliantly chaired by our own Dr Amrit Caleyachetty and once again attendance was high. We enjoyed intelligent debate and a fascinating Q&A session.

On behalf of the existing membership I would also like to extend a special welcome to the new members who joined tonight. We are already relatively large for a local society of the Fabians, and continue to grow which is fantastic for the health of the society and the events and debates we are able to hold.

The audio from the event tonight will be up on the website in due course, in case you missed it tonight. Furthermore, there was a live blog of the event, which was also posted to Twitter with the hashtag #nfhealth

The Executive will be meeting next week, on the 8th of August. As always, we welcome any feedback, comments and suggestions from the membership to be added to the agenda. Whether comments on past events, suggestions for future events (topics and/or formats) or any general suggestions for the society.  Please just let us know on the contact form.

Finally, the discussion need not end here. If you have any thoughts on the event tonight, the topic of Health and Social Care more generally, or indeed anything political, then the executive would be delighted to read it and potentially publish as an essay on the site. Again, let us know on the contact form.
