NHS England has published a film which has been co-produced with people with a learning disability. Getting Involved at NHS England clearly explains NHS England’s leadership role in health services. It also encourages patients and the public to get involved in the work of NHS England. The film was produced in response to members of NHS England’s Learning Disability and Autism Forum, who felt NHS England’s role could be explained more simply.

Four new patient and public participation frameworks have now been published on the NHS England website. They have been developed together with commissioning teams and partners, including patients and the public, and build on the existing NHS England patient and public participation policy and statement of arrangements. They provide practical guidance on the best ways to involve patients and the public in different services and include good practice examples and links to resources for commissioners to use.
Links to all of the new frameworks can be found below:
The participation framework for primary care was published last year.
