External Views

We asked a series of questions which looked to understand what our members perceive to be the attitudes or opinions of other key stakeholders in the system, or politically.

68% of respondents feel very positively or positively about the attitude of the current government to the independent heath sector – an increase from 53% last year.

For the first time we asked a question about perceptions of Labour’s attitude to the independent sector, reflecting the possibility of a change of government at an anticipated general election. The results are cautiously optimistic with 45% feeling positive and almost the same percentage feeling that Labour’s attitude is broadly neutral.
