National event

On 13th December 2006 the ‘Getting Ready for LINks’ national conference was held at the London Paddington Hilton Hotel. This event was organised to explore in detail the development of Local Involvement Networks (LINks) and provide clarity to those stakeholders present on the arrangements needed in place once Patients’ Forums and the Commission for Patient and Public Involvement in Health (CPPIH) are abolished 2008. A commitment was made at this event, that regional events will take place during Spring and Summer 2007, where the lessons learnt from this conference will inform the planning for the regional events.

This document contains a detailed write-up of the national event and was used to inform the agenda and proceedings for the regional events.
