Have say on the NHS at Brighton and Hove conference

People  interested in having a say on how health services are run are invited to a meeting later this month.

A conference is being held for all of the patient participation groups (PPG) based at GP practices in Brighton and Hove.

The groups give patients a chance to be involved and give their views about services provided by their local GP.

The conference, organised by the Brighton and Hove Clinical Commissioning Group, will give members at various practices a chance to get together for the first time.

The free event will take place at the Brighthelm Centre in North Road on February 13 from 9.30am to 4pm.

Although the conference is mainly aimed at PPG members any other patients and members of the public interested in joining their GP surgery’s group can also attend.

Commissioning group chairman Xavier Nalletamby said: “Many of our 47 practices in the city have a patient participation group and this event is an excellent opportunity for members of the groups to come together and share their ideas.”

All consultation about the NHS is pointless. It's a sacred cow that no-one has the cojones to reform from top to bottom as is required.

Whilst we spend vast amounts of cash on the NHS, even compared to our European neighbours, check out the results vs. other EU countries (available on the EU website). If I remember correctly we're in the bottom quartile for everything.

The Stafford report out later might, if we're lucky, lead to real, much needed reforms. It's the only possible good that will come from what promises to be an extremely disturbing review.

Is there anything you wouldn't say to try and promote the ntentions of those trying desperately to shaft the NHS and make a quick buck for their private sector buddies? Your statements are untrue. The reforms are are extremely wasteful and deeply flawed. More ideology from desperately misguided or disingenuous 'let us privatise everything' morons.

Please, tell us all how well these privatisations have gone for customers everywhere. Management bonuses rocketed, efficiency fell, bills increased.

Are you hoping to directly benefit from the carving-up of this public asset? Just someone who is being relied upon to spread nonsense that supports a flawed political agenda?

What's your position on fox hunting, by the way? It would be useful for people to better understand from where you're coming.

If you have ever worked it would certainly not appear to be in, or for, the NHS or in an area where you were required to evaluate and understand evidence or facts.
