Consultation: The People’s NHS 24/10/12
Health Minister proposes a new relationship between the Government, the NHS and the public
Health Minister Lesley Griffiths has launched a conversation around how the NHS, the public and the Government in Wales can work better together on improving health and health services. The aim will be to make it easier for people to talk to the NHS and Government and get the information and help they need. A consultation on a ‘compact’ linking the Welsh Government, the NHS and the public was a commitment in Together for Health, the five year plan for the NHS in Wales.
The consultation is asking people to offer their views to help drive improvements faster. How can services be improved? How can the NHS improve the way it works with communities and offers advice to individuals? Can people be better helped to manage their own health and health problems? It also raises questions about whether people might do more to help themselves – for example quitting smoking or eating more healthily.

The Consultation closes on 24 October 2012
