DH Consultations - we want your views

7th December 2010

The Department of Health has launched a new consultation tool that allows you to read and respond to consultations online.

The platform makes it easier for you to respond, because your response can be saved before it is completed and you can return to it at a later date. Simply provide your e-mail address at the start of your response. On doing so you will be provided with a unique code. There is no obligation to complete all questions, but by using the unique code you can complete a consultation in stages.

This tool is currently being piloted for these consultations:

Next steps for Healthy Start: Adding frozen fruit and vegetable and minimising voucher misuse

The Department of Health, the Scottish Government, the Welsh Assembly Government and the Northern Ireland Assembly is asking whether Healthy Start voucher beneficiaries should be able to choose to spend vouchers on plain frozen fruit and vegetables as well as the foods already allowed. They are also asking whether further measures may be needed to reduce risks of vouchers being spent on products not included in the scheme. This consultation closes on 31 December 2010.

The Department is seeking views from patients, the wider public, healthcare professionals and the NHS about taking forward proposals to offer greater choice and control over care and treatment, choice of any willing provider, whether relevant and choice of treatment and healthcare provider becoming the reality in the vast majority of NHS-funded services by no later than 2013/12. This consultation will close on 14 January 2011.
