What is the NHS exactly?

If we want to defend it what are we defending?

How could we defend it?

This seminar will consider how people have thought about the National Health Service over the last hundred years, how it has changed since 1948, and what this means for campaigning.

There are various opportunities for lay people to be involved in the running of the English NHS.

There is local Healthwatch – to be launched in April 2013

You can be a member, or be elected as a Governor, of  Foundation Trusts

Local councils have increasing involvement in the running of the NHS, taking over Public Health responsibilities in April 2013 and establishing health and wellbeing boards as well as the existing Health Scrutiny arrangements

Clinical Commissioning Groups have various arrangements for involving patients and the public, and so increasingly do local GP practices.
