13/6/2011 News release
National Voices has welcomed the NHS Future Forum report and urges the government to accept the recommendations and, in some cases, to go further.
This report embodies many of the principles and actions that our members – over 100 health and social care charities - have been calling for on behalf of service users.
Points in the report that National Voices particularly welcomes include:
• A focus on the NHS constitution – a landmark statement of rights, signed by National Voices
• The importance of integration of care services
• The principle that “no decision about me without me” should be hard wired into every part of the system”
