Freedom of Information Act:

Local Involvement Networks (Links)

The Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Act 2007 replaced patient and public involvement forums from 1 April 2008 with Local Involvement Networks (Links).

Local Involvement Networks aim to give citizens a stronger voice in how their health and social care services are delivered.

Run by local individuals and groups and independently supported - the role of Links is to find out what people want, monitor local services and to use their powers to hold health and social care providers to account.
