Video: Q&A from Labour's health policy launch

Watch GPs and other healthcare professionals grilling shadow health secretary Andy Burnham over his NHS proposals.

Mr Burnham set out his vision for the NHS on Thursday, which includes merging health and social care budgets and giving greater control to health and wellbeing boards, while scaling back the role of CCGs.

He also confirmed that Labour would hand NHS organisations 'preferred provider' status to run health services, but did not rule out a role for the private and voluntary sectors.
