Gail Beer spoke to Sheila Fogarty about David Cameron's promise to ensure free healthcare is available 24 hours, seven days a week. Gail pointed out that the government needs to make a promise that is achievable and be clear to the public about what they can expect. She mentioned how the social care infrastructure needs more investment and integration to in particular, help keep the elderly and those with mental health issues out of hospitals. Gail also believes the public need to take more responsibility for their health and use the NHS services appropriately, for example making use of pharmacists.
