The NHS Centre for Involvement is in the process of pulling together a compendium of guidance, which will be made available from 1 April 2008.

Since the Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Act 2007 was enacted in October last year, a great deal of work has been done to ensure that a local involvement network (LINk) is established in each local authority area.

A programme of tools and services will be available to all 150 local authorities, to support them in making arrangements for LINks activities in their area.
