Feedback on Health & Social Care discussion

The CPF’s Health and Social Care discussion was very helpful, so thank you to you and the broader CPF network for sharing such a rich set of perspectives. As you know, the NHS is the Government’s highest spending priority and social care an area where the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) is preparing to publish a significant Green Paper. From the number of CPF groups contributing these are clearly topics that members also feel strongly about.

We hope that you have seen the encouraging formal responses that we received to our discussions on the environment, on skills & training and on Conservatives values. We are pleased to publish this new discussion paper on the challenge and opportunities of the digital age.

Feedback on Skills & Training and Environment discussions

The CPF’s Paper 1/2018 on “Skills and Training for a 21st Century Workforce” and Paper 2/2018 on “Conservative Conservation” were excellent discussions. The Papers are diverse, wide-ranging and engaging; their suggestions for policy development are both thoughtful and compelling. We very much value the direct input of CPF members into our work here in Downing Street, and I am very pleased, on behalf of Gavin Barwell as Chief of Staff, to enclose formal feedback to several issues that were raised.

Feedback on Conservatives Values & Policy Commission

I am delighted to be able to bring you this formal response from Chris Skidmore MP, Chair of the Conservative Policy Commission and Vice Chair for Policy, to the CPF's reflection on Conservative values, which began with our national discussion paper and concluded with our recent online Members' poll.
