Health White Paper consultation - Manchester 7/9/10

Equity and excellence: liberating the NHS

Health White Paper Consultation Event, Tuesday 7th September 2010, 10.30 am – 3.30 pm, in Manchester Town Hall

"The White Paper on Health has the potential to create one of the biggest changes to the structure and function of the NHS since its creation in 1948. .. .Although the ‘what’ in the White Paper has largely been decided, the ‘how’ is very much still being shaped." One of the 5 regional consultations is in Manchester..

"... The North West event is being organised by Voluntary Sector North West in partnership with Regional Voices (VSNW’s national network) and Manchester City Council.

"These events will give you the opportunity to learn more about the proposed changes through the White Paper as well as having the chance to attend four interactive consultation workshops during the day to discuss issues in depth and to provide feedback directly to those leading on the consultations from the Department of Health.

"The events will:

  • Raise awareness among the third sector of the proposed changes in the Health White Paper
  • Help third sector organisations understand how the White Paper will impact on their work.
  • Identify some of the cross cutting issues of particular relevance to the sector
  • Provide a forum to develop understanding of the role of the Third Sector in emerging health structures
  • Provide direct feedback to the Department of Health on the consultation areas"
