Update on the Health Grant – June 2012

Your campaign team held their first meeting with Paul Burstow, the Minister of State for Care Services, last week. This was the first meeting of the campaign with this minister and he thanked us for seeing him. He said it would be good to meet again after publication of the second Firefly interim report. This will be published in the week beginning 9 July 2012.

In summary, he made no commitment to us, other than to receive and read the second interim Firefly evaluation report in July and to meet us again after that. There will be further news after the minister meets with the campaign team again.
