The DoH today announced the creation of the National Strategic Partnership Forum (NSPF), which will be responsible for reviewing the strategic agreement between the DoH, the NHS and the voluntary and community sector and report to parliament. It will be chaired by Melinda Letts, former chair of the Long-term Medical Conditions Alliance patients group. "The NSPF will provide members with the opportunity to influence DoH policy on the delivery of services and identify how we can develop even more effective partnership working," said the DoH.
