Government response to ‘No voice unheard, no right ignored.’ logo

The government response sets out its proposed actions, which are intended to see everyone being treated with dignity and respect by health and care services, and all enjoying the same rights.

The proposals balance the need for urgent progress with the need to effect longer term system-wide change by covering three phases:

  • early actions to sustain current momentum
  • further changes, including proposed legislative changes
  • a third phase exploring more radical solutions to longer-term issues
  • Legislative proposals are put forward where we do not think the required change is possible within the current system, or where stakeholders do not have confidence that existing arrangements will achieve the required changes.

We also propose a clear commitment to monitoring and considering further intervention if the necessary improvements are not achieved.
