Professor Lee-Ann Fenge joined an All Party Parliamentary Health Group (APHG) event and drew from her extensive background and knowledge of social care to talk about the benefits of the Health and Care Bill, advocating for true integrated care within the health system in the UK.
The event, ‘The Health and Care Bill Explained’, organised by Policy Connect, featured Bournemouth University alongside the Kings Fund, Local Government Association and the NHS Confederation. Attendees included members of the House of Lords and Members of Parliament, as well as key care-based organisations and charities for a series of short presentations.
Other topics covered by Professor Fenge included the need for seldom heard voices to be heard in order to help shape legislation that works for all, and providing parity in care for marginalised groups.
