Motion text

That this House notes that the National Health Service Plan proposes the abolition of the Community Health Councils and the redistribution of their functions between the Patient Advocacy and Liaison Service, patients' forums, advisory citizens' panels, local council all-party scrutiny committees and the Commission for Health Improvement; and calls for the Government to engage in a robust national debate and consultation on how to deliver effective patient empowerment by adding to the best of Community Health Councils and particularly by addressing the need for independence, integration locally and nationally, appropriate statutory powers and access to information and support mechanisms to identify and promote best practice.
