§ Ms Stuart
Chapter 10 of the NHS Plan proposed that Community Health Councils be abolished and that new structures be set in place to strengthen patient and citizen empowerment across all sectors of the Health Service. A number of representations have been received about the future of CHCs and the new structures that were detailed in the NHS Plan. The Health and Social Care Bill, which is now before Parliament, provides the legislative support for the new structures.
