Direct payments for Health Care (a request)

The govern­ment’s look­ing at giving patients the abil­ity to spend directly on the care they need, not just being put on a wait­ing list or going to an NHS ther­apy service that’s too far away. I got an email asking if I could trans­late the consulta­tion on this before I put the last poll up. They also asked if I could do the Energy one, so I put it in the poll. 

Unfortunately not enough people were inter­ested in hear­ing about the govern­ment’s Energy plans, so I hope you’re look­ing forward to the NHS consti­tu­tion paper (that will prob­ably be my next post, but I’m going on holi­day so it might be a few weeks, sorry all!).

To keep you busy in the mean­time, here’s a simple version of the Department of Health’s Direct payments for Health Care. Please note this is NOT the Easy Read version the original paper prom­ises, I don’t know where that is… :)

Remember, you need to respond by 8 January 2010 if you have strong feel­ings about this paper.

You can down­load the simple version, or if you’ve got flash you can read it here:
