Volume 455: debated on Thursday 18 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what representations she has received on the establishment of LINks; and if she will make a statement. (114647)

There were almost 500 responses to “A stronger local voice”, concerning our plans for patient and public involvement, including the establishment of local involvement networks (LINks). We had also received a great deal of feedback through our stakeholder engagement. This feedback has been taken on board wherever possible and has helped to shape our plans for how LINks will work. This is reflected in the Government response document to “A stronger local voice”, copies of which are available in the Library.
