NHS Future Forum

My Black Cat is having a nap until about 2.0pm today.

Then The Witch Doctor will waken her up.

It is then that Professor Steve Field will report back the findings of the NHS Future Forum.

MEMBERSHIP OF THE FUTURE FORUM


A lot of people have been involved in this forum, presumably the deliberations of each and every one of them has been funded by the taxpayer.

Or maybe all the members and their support staff have, conforming to the principles of “The Big Society” freely volunteered to cover their own time and expenses. It would be good to let the citizens of England know know if this is the case, since they themselves are being asked to do good on a daily basis, and such knowledge would surely encourage them to make their own contributions in their own ways.

There have been lots of leaks about what the report will say – words like competition, cooperation, integration, commissioning are continually being flaunted.

But My Black Cat is interested in one thing only.

It is these words:

“The Secretary of State must for that purpose provide or secure the provision of services in accordance with this Act.”

These words have been repeated in every NHS Act until now.

This government’s proposed bill changes this:

“The Secretary of State must act with a view to securing the provision of services for the purposes of the health service in accordance with this Act.”

Whatever changes are recommended then if this wording is not changed back to that in the original NHS Acts then she believes that NHS will cease to exist.

So, Professor Field, My Black Cat will be waiting patiently at 2.30pm to hear what you have to say.

And she will be listening for one sentence.

For without it, the deliberations of your Future Forum will have no substance.
