Since the 1990’s successive government policies have fostered the way for collaborative working in health and social care. Within this framework public, patient and service user involvement in how local services should best be delivered has become a central wheel in the cog of collaboration. The White Paper The New NHS Modern and Dependable (1997) The Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Act (2007) and more recent legislation in the form of the NHS and Social Care Act 2012 have all set the agenda for greater public participation in how local health services should best be delivered. \ud \ud However, the implementation of such policy is fraught with difficulties and highly problematic. Medical and managerialist dominance of health care, lack of public knowledge and agreed definitions of what constitutes an appropriate level of participation for all service users are just some of the issues which need to be addressed if democratic public participation in the decision making process is to truly become a reality within the NHS. This paper will highlight such issues by citing relevant research and offering a number of suggestions, which will foster greater equitable public participation in health care planning and delivery of service.
