Burnham pays tribute to NHS staff

Andy Burnham opened the NHS Expo 2017 at Manchester Central by praising the ‘heroic efforts’ of NHS staff for their care of the victims of the Manchester bombing.

Nine NHS organisations were involved in the response to the bombing, in which 22 people lost their lives, including Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Stockport NHS Foundation Trust.

The Manchester Mayor said: “In the aftermath of the attack I felt the strength in our NHS in Manchester and saw a service that today is so much more than the sum of its parts. We are blessed with great people leading the NHS.”

Burnham, who in his role as mayor controls a £6 billion devolved health and social care budget, also emphasised Manchester’s ambitions for integrating health and social care.
