Publication of the DH's response to the 'No decision about me, without me' consultation has been released. This can be found on the DH website alongside the new DH Choice Frameworks: http://www.dh.gov.uk/health/2012/12/choice-response
This response is the culmination of nearly two and half years of work stretching to two consultation exercises from the White Paper, through the Listening Exercise to the Mandate.
The Choice Frameworks are the first to be published under the Open Public Services agenda, and span 2012/13 (in place now) and 2013/14 -which takes account of the changes within the NHS that will be in place by April 2013.
Thank you for responding to our consultations and please let us know if you have any problems accessing these documents.
We would also ask you to share widely the Choice Frameworks in particular, which are aimed at informing patients, their representatives and the public of the Choices that exist or can be expected within the NHS.
