7 Partnerships Accountability Trust Dialogue Commitment I thought I would end on partnerships – it is Valentines day after all.Is the NHS a good partner? I don’t think it has been – I think the present is better – but we still need to improveAccountability – in the past 5 SHAs. Now 1. Not strategic. Not elected. PCTs not FTTrust – communications with the public has been poor. Poorly resourced, targeted and executed. We want to work with councils to help build PCT communications capacity, skills, experience and, most importantly, a sense of community.Dialogue and commitment - Describe recent meetings with James Reilly, Roger Hampson; Paul Corrigan and GOL etc Deloittes (separate briefing) Local Area Agreement work; LCG and JOSC; good to see voluntary organisations represented and members of the Public and Patient Advisory Group etcFINALLY. We are delighted to be supporting today’s event to help you frame your responses to Healthcare for London. We look forward to receiving a response from London Councils, from your own councils and from you individually.At a meeting last week PCTs were asked what they were doing with the ‘Healthcare for London’ T-Shirts. We printed up 100 for the roadshows, then another 100 and another 100? Are people, we wondered, wearing them as casual wear about the home?The answer from one (male) attendee? Valentine’s day is coming up!
