POLYCLINICS – New legislation required?

HIDE THE THIMBLE

Look again for the word polyclinic, so popular with HMG a few months ago.

DOH – NEW LEGISLATION TO SUPPORT NEXT STAGE REVIEW

“A new NHS Reform Bill to help deliver improved, more personalised care for millions of patients, was included in the Government’s draft legislative programme, published today.

The Bill will take forward any proposals arising from the NHS Next Stage Review that will require primary legislation to implement. Lord Darzi’s final report, published in the summer, will set out how the Government will support clinicians to transform the quality of care locally, including:

* Publishing an NHS Constitution setting out the rights and responsibilities of staff and patients to strengthen and sustain the NHS;

* Enabling and encouraging Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) to be more responsive to their local communities including strengthening public involvement in PCTs commissioning arrangements; and,

* Giving greater scope for patients to shape the care they receive including having greater control over the management of their care.

Since the Review began there has been extensive consultation. 60,000 NHS and social care staff, patients, users, carers and members of the public have participated directly in the process. Almost 2,000 frontline clinicians and other staff working in health and social care organisations have led local working groups across eight pathways of care involving discussions with thousands of patients, members of the public and other NHS staff.”

You can’t find the word, My Black Cat?

Never mind, as patients we’re going to be able to decide the shape and management of our care.

I bet its only the tiddly things we’ll be allowed to shape and manage, My Black Cat.

Like insisting on seeing the consultant of your choice, a national expert, in a timely manner when you develop some really horrible disease?

Eh, My Black Cat?
