The NHS For Beginners project is intended to help more people get involved in their local NHS. Most people have very little idea about how the NHS is organised.  We plan to run classes across England directed at people who are not currently involved in the NHS.

What is the NHS exactly?

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 – 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.

    I am sorry – I have sent in a booking but thr form seemed to be on top of other informsation on the site and it was not possible to fill in one of the sections as it couldnt be seen? I think there may be something wrong with the site.

What do you think?
