HC Deb 01 February 1983 vol 36 cc75-6W
Dr. Roger Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he proposes to take steps to implement the recently published recommendation of the Office of Health Economics for increased consumer participation in health care decision-making; and whether he proposes to strengthen the position and responsibility of community health councils and the Health Education Council to this end.

Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg

I assume the hon. Member is referring to the recent Office of Health Economics monograph "The Consumer Movement, Health and the Pharmaceutical Industry". This made no specific recommendations.
