Local councils want say on NHS

13th December 2007

The head of the Local Government Association (LGA) has said he believes council leaders should be given the power to sack under-performing health and police chiefs.

Sir Simon Milton says chief constables and NHS Trust bosses should be answerable to people through local councils in England and Wales. LGA chairman Sir Simon, who is also the leader of Tory-controlled Westminster, outlines that while national health standards are necessary, directors of clinics, surgeries and hospitals in each area should be accountable to residents through their council.
