The rise and fall of the patient forum

By P. Warwick


The circular, ‘A Stronger Local Voice’ (Department of Health 2006) published in July announced that Patient Forums in England will be abolished to be replaced by local authority run Local Involvement Networks (LINks). What went wrong with Forums? What was wrong with Community Health Councils before them? Will LINks be more successful than either of them? Is there anything to be gained from another major reorganisation of public involvement arrangements
