Are they listening but not hearing?

There appears to be growing disquiet across the country about the NHS Listening Exercise – the ‘natural pause’ in the progress towards NHS reform in the UK.

On Wednesday 18th May One EM will be hosting one of these listening events at Leicester AIDS Support Service (LASS) and will be joined by Jeremy Taylor from National Voices, a member of the NHS Futures Forum, to undertake that ‘active listening’.

Nationally there have been accusations that these listening events are purely that – without any indication that responding or adapting the proposals will take place as a result. 

At this stage One EM will do as much as possible to ensure that the messages from our members in the East Midlands are heard and understood. Please be assured that we will be clear on the changes that are expected, why they are required and will ask for a response to our views and comments.

If you have views that you would like to feed into our response please see the Listening Event questions at http://healthandcare.dh.gov.uk/category/conversations/listening-exercise-conversations/ and email your comments to us at information@one-em.org.uk by Monday 23 May for inclusion in our One EM response
