Ed Miliband says NHS staff and patients should hold the Government to account for the controversial reforms to the health service. In a speech to the Royal College of Nursing conference in Harrogate he said:
The NHS is owned by the people of Britain. 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 were not a vested interest. You were the defenders of the health service.
