This iswhy they are the natural partners for the NHS.This one-day conference will provide the opportunity to hear about the practicalexperience of people involved in delivering co-operative healthcare. It will highlightdevelopments in the foundation trust sector, and new approaches in the co-operative andmutual organisation of primary care.Your participation is invited.‘‘ ’’ Mutual models can provide an attractive alternative to both stateand private provision of local services – devolving ownership and control ofservices to the people who care about them most.Rt Hon Ruth Kelly, MP, then Minister at the Cabinet Office
