The NHS Commissioning Board has proposed a "Civil Society Assembly" in the wake of the Mid Staffs scandal. The paper openly refers to "the usual suspects", and their wish to avoid said groups/individuals. It's a nice thought but, having attended various LINk, HealthWatch and other health & social care events, I'm not sure how this can realistically be achieved. There are so many different [unfortunately competing] interests, that it always ends up being those who are already in the club, those who shout loudest and those with connections who get the seats at the table.
