NHS Alliance consults on patient involvement

The NHS Alliance is asking how best patient and public involvement can be embedded throughout the NHS on the eve of its annual conference.

On Tuesday 20 October it launches a six-week consultation on what the NHS Constitution commitment: ‘The NHS belongs to the people' really means.

Dr Brian Fisher, national public and patient involvement lead for the NHS Alliance, said: ‘How best can we do this? Share accountability with your local authority? Have elected members as in Scotland? Use community development?'
