HC Deb 08 July 2003 vol 408 c780W
Mr. Burstow

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many public patient involvement forums he expects will be functioning by the end of 2003; and how many people will be sitting on each forum at the end of 2003. [124401]

Ms Rosie Winterton

The intention is that all patient and public involvement forums will be set up and able to carry out their functions by 1 December. It is likely that, initially, each forum will have a minimum of seven members. This is the figure included in the draft patient forum regulations that are subject to current consultation.
