Daniel_Zeichner_NHS_-_comp.jpgReacting to the announcement by Cambridgeshire Clinical Commissioning Group that the Addenbrookes consortium has won the contract to provide Older People’s services, Cambridge Labour Parliamentary Candidate Daniel Zeichner says:

I am delighted that Addenbrookes has won the contract – this will reassure patients who faced being guinea pigs in an unwanted trial, and reassure staff who have been understandably concerned about their future. But I am incredibly angry about the money that has been wasted on consultants, lawyers and advisers – which runs to many millions of pounds. All that money could have been better spent training much-needed nurses. After almost three years of uncertainty, we still end up with a less integrated service than we started with, because social care has been transferred back to the County Council. The CCG was forced to go out to tender because of the Health and Social Care Act imposed by Conservatives and Liberal Democrats – Labour will abolish it, and build genuine integration through co-operation, not competition.

Older People’s Services Decision – huge amount of money wasted

Daniel_Zeichner_head3.jpgBefore MPs voted on whether the UK should join air strikes in Iraq. Cambridge Labour Parliamentary Candidate Daniel Zeichner says that having consulted people across Cambridge, he finds that although there are strong views both for and against, most people are sceptical, and he shares that scepticism:

Everyone is horrified by the barbarism of ISIL – but that isn’t the question. The question is whether having RAF bombers involved in this campaign makes a long-term solution more or less likely. ISIL wants to portray their cause as a war against the West – and we risk giving them exactly what they seek. Just a year ago, we were poised to bomb the other side – which shows just how complicated this situation is. In these circumstances, my view is that the UK should give every humanitarian and technical support, but should not join the air strikes.
