Lib Dem Regional Vice Chair Phil Knowles says the Commons Health Select Committee could be the vital key to finding the way forward in challenging times for the NHS.

'The NHS needs a full and over arching review without delay. An overarching review on everything from Bed Blocking to Budgets, GP Services to Mental Health Care , Social Care, ‎Ambulance Responce Times, Domiciliary Care Provision, Doctor Numbers, Nursing Numbers and so much more. Services that work alongside each other and where challenges/problems in one sector can and do impact on others.

We won't solve the issues until there is a complete overarching review.

This influential body meets within days and I would hope that they seize the opportunity to underline the need for an overarching review and to do everything they can to make it happen without delay.

The NHS is already experiencing an array of difficulties. Winter is just around the corner and this will undoubtedly increase the pressures.

Time is not our our side if we are to see the NHS thrive and not just survive' - Cllr Phil Knowles
