[Correspondence] NHS manifesto: the missing piece of the puzzle

The NHS Manifesto published in The Lancet by Nigel Crisp and colleagues (Dec 10, 2016, e24)1 is a broadly compelling one, and yet it mirrors an error made by National Health Service (NHS) England’s Five Year Forward View2 in calling for a major transformation of the UK’s largest public service without acknowledging the importance of public engagement in those plans. To be sure, Crisp and colleagues1 call for services to be made patient-centred, and for patients and carers to be engaged “in decision making and care”.
