Motion text

That this House believes that the design and delivery of NHS services benefit when patients and the public are fully involved both in decision making and in monitoring acute and primary healthcare; notes the Government's intention to abolish patient forums, which it set up after abolishing community health councils in 2003, and replace them with local involvement networks (LINks); is concerned that LINks will not have powers to inspect and monitor the NHS on behalf of patients, will not have the credibility with the public that accompanies true independence, and will not have the networking capability to represent patients on a regional or national level; believes that the Government should reconsider urgently its proposal for the future of patient and public involvement in health; and calls for the creation of a new body with both a national and a local presence which would be truly independent of health and social care services and would have the power to refer matters of concern to the health service regulator, so that patients and the public are given a much stronger voice in decisions about the NHS.
