I had quite a long day yesterday down in London, first of all I was at a meeting with other Policy types representing other charities that are part of the Neurological Alliance. neural.org.uk/ One of our main topics of discussion was the dramatic u-turn that Cameron recently made in regards to the NHS reforms, I’ve you’ve missed the news Cameron, Clegg and Lansley have now discovered that nobody’s happy about their plans to reform the NHS and decided to pause proceedings and have a “Listening Period”, however the up and coming Cameron/Clegg/Lansley roadshow is only for health care professionals, so what about the patient groups? I have a cunning plan…..I would like to gather as many points of view from my fellow ticcers and their parents/carers with regards to these proposals so please use the comment box below, fill up my message inbox, tell me what you think about GP consortiums commissioning your treatment (That’s shopping around for a good deal, not necessarily the best!), and private social enterprise companies running our hospitals, I want to know! Then I will move on to part two of my cunning plan…..
I also yesterday gatecrashed the London TA support group; it’s always good to meet up with ticcer friends and meet new people so a big HELLO! To everyone that I met last night!
