What is the NHS exactly? How has it changed since the passing of the Health and Social Care Act?

If we want to defend it what are we defending? How could we defend it?

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

  • There is local Healthwatch – 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, took over Public Health responsibilities in April 2013 and have established 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.

This seminar will help you to make sense of debates about the NHS, and help you to campaign locally.

There is no charge, but you must book.

    Can I book another place for the Bristol event on 14th June? The manage my bookings page does not seem to offer this facility.
