Forum will deliver with government

    Community care minister Stephen Ladyman has announced that a new
    body will be responsible for reviewing the strategic agreement
    between the Department of Health, the NHS and the voluntary sector.

    The National Strategic Partnership Forum will be made up of 25
    members, including Barnardo’s and Age Concern England, and will
    start work in April. It will be responsible for looking at how to
    raise awareness of workforce issues, offering greater choice for
    users and giving better value for public resources.

    Ladyman said: “The forum will provide members with the opportunity
    to influence departmental policy on the delivery of services.”
