Since June my main activities have been

  • the development of the website – the Editorial Board will report on this
  • building a partnership with Equality North West.  We have started a programme of events around health inequality across the North West, and have done 2 sessions in Bolton
  • more Defending the NHS sessions, in Bristol, Gloucester, Chorlton, Wythenshawe, and Kendal
  • the Labour Party National Policy Forum weekend.  I’m still not very confident in the process, but I have more faith in the people
  • publicising the NHS 65th Birthday events.
  • we organised a seminar with Titus Alexander on his ideas for a Parliament for Health
  • we organised a seminar on social care which is reported separately
  • During my European tour I built some useful links in Germany and Austria, and I hope to get some useful international perspectives on our website in due course
  • building partnerships with the Manchester Fabians – we organised a joint event on public health policy.  I hope to do something similar with the Socialist Education Association in Manchester
  • improving our relationship with  Unison in Yorkshire.  I ran a stall at their NHS anniversary celebration in Leeds, and spoke at the launch   of the Band Together for the NHS campaign
  • speaking at the Unite NW Equality conference, and at my local Unite branch in Central Manchester
