Today we welcome Sir Bruce Keogh, medical director of the NHS, as a blogger in HealthUnlocked. Along with Keith Willett he outlines the nature of his latest plans for Urgent and Emergency Care review in England, plans that affect every one of us who live in England.
It’s the first time senior figures in the NHS have opened up a review on a patient social network like HU so we welcome it greatly and hope it sets a precedent for future important communications in the NHS. Over a million people visit HealthUnlocked every month now, following discussions about conditions, treatment, services and the very fabric of healthcare. By engaging with our users directly on something as important as future emergency care Sir Bruce is delivering on a promise to involve patients in shaping the future of the NHS. For this reason any input and comment on the blog is, as always, welcome.
