How can feedback change the NHS? – discussion roundup in The Guardian and BMJ

There is no comment on NHSreality and the urgency of the need for change … but these group discussions are a good start.

The BMA invites younger doctors to take part in a discussion group.

The Guardian has an interesting discussion group around the Health Services….Sarah Johnson, Friday 20 December 2013 summarises:

The themes of the chosen discussions are listed below:

What can whistleblowers expect when they raise concerns?

What can we do to improve NHS culture?

How can feedback influence the NHS?

What is being done?

What practical steps can be taken to encourage and instil a duty of candour in hospitals?

About Roger Burns - retired GP

I am a retired GP and medical educator. I have supported patient participation throughout my career, and my practice, St Thomas; Surgery, has had a longstanding and active Patient Participation Group (PPG). I support the idea of Community Health Councils, although I feel they should be funded at arms length from government. I have taught GP trainees for 30 years, and been a Programme Director for GP training in Pembrokeshire 20 years. I served on the Pembrokeshire LHG and LHB for a total of 10 years. I completed an MBA in 1996, and I along with most others, never had an exit interview from any job in the NHS! I completed an MBA in 1996, and was a runner up for the Adam Smith prize for economy and efficiency in government in that year. This was owing to a suggestion (St Thomas' Mutual) that practices had incentives for saving by being allowed to buy rationed out services in the following year.
