Advisory body to ensure inclusion

NHS Connecting for Health has established a voluntary sector advisory group to help make sure the needs of hard-to-reach patient groups are incorporated into its national IT services.

The National Advisory Group, known as Nag, currently has 23 members, including the RNIB, the RNID, Mencap, Homeless Link, Age Concern, Refugee Action, the Prison Reform Trust and the Terrence Higgins Trust.

A spokesman for NHS Connecting for Health said the new group would allow the service "to understand the perspectives of a range of patient groups and voluntary sector organisations, including the views of seldom-heard groups, and gain support to ensure products and services are accessible to people with differing needs".
