  • 18:42 Story (28 links): Clegg 'claims victory' on NHS

    PoliticsHome Clegg 'claims victory' on NHS Story View links

    A senior Liberal Democrat has claimed the party acted as a "safety valve" over the Health Bill.

    Norman Lamb told the Politics Show he was now "satisfied" that Lib Dem concerns about the Bill had been met, and said party leader Nick Clegg had been "incredibly effective in the way that he has engaged both with clinicians, but then argued the case within Government."

    The party has reportedly claimed victory over changes to the Bill. Discussing the changes to the proposals, a source close to Nick Clegg reportedly remarked "We have won". The results of the Government's 'listening exercise' are due on Monday.

    The Shadow Health Secretary John Healey told Sky's Murnaghan that David Cameron wanted to the NHS to become a, "full scale market [system], modeled on the private utilities". He added this "will be driven by the force of competition and that’s going to be bad for patients and I think we’ll start to see the NHS going backwards again under the Tories."

    But former Conservative Health Minister Stephen Dorrell told the Andrew Marr Show that "we need to focus on the policy rather than the politics", and insisted that Andrew Lansley would remain Health Secretary. Conservative backbencher Peter Bone said that unless the Lib Dems "change their ways" and stop playing party politics "it really marks the beginning of the end of the Coalition".

    Lib Dem health spokesman John Pugh has said NHS reform could "collapse" over competition concerns. Mr Pugh has raised doubts over the NHS Forum, which advises the Government on health reform. He told The Observer that competition adviser Sir Stephen Bubb had a "clear conflict of interest" because he heads the Adventure Capital Fund, some of whose clients would stand to benefit from increased private sector involvement in the health service.
