Andrew Lansley has announced that a new group of patient representatives, doctors and nurses will be brought together to listen and report back to Government.
Chaired by Birmingham GP and former Royal College of General Practioners Chairman Steve Field, the new NHS ‘Future Forum’ will provide a valuable channel for the thoughts and opinions of patients and staff on the ground.
Steve Field, the Chair of the new NHS Future Forum, said:
“It’s a great pleasure to chair the NHS Future Forum. Listening to people on the ground is vital, and I see this as a real chance for people to have their say in shaping the future of the NHS.”
