Meeting with LINK at Totnes

LINk is the Local Involvement Network, shortly to become Local Healthwatch, an organisation that aims to report on and liaise about local healthcare provision. Under the Health and Social Care Bill, there will be an increase in the accountability of local healthcare. It is fair to say that local people had very little say in how health services were commissioned or provided in the past and as we move to the new arrangements with clinical commissioning, there should be much greater opportunity for people to get involved through local healthwatch.
