Getting the best care locally

Really positive discussions this morning with health professionals from across the primary care system, and we all agree on what's needed. We have to give our trained and skilled professionals the local flexibility and autonomy to deliver services that fit our local needs, not just those that are dictated nationally. We also have to do more to recognise that local need when it comes to commissioning services. 

Other factors, such as boosting public transport or education, play a huge role in our overall health too. Lots to take up with the Health Secretary next week.
