As part of his speech to NHS workers today Ed Miliband will accuse the Government of acting like "the masters, not the servants".
Mr Miliband will say: "Our health service is owned by patients, professionals and the people. And their voice - your voice - deserves to be heard. I can't promise that we will always agree about everything.
But what I will never do is what this Government did: dismiss you as just a 'vested interest'. You are not. You are the defenders of the health service."
