Congratulations to Paul Streets new Patient Voice Lead

Staying with the HSJ, this week (21 May) an 'in brief' item announces the appointment of the new Patient Voice Lead, Paul Streets - to whom I extend many congratulations! I note that:

His role includes developing methods of collecting near time patient feedback. p.8

Mr Streets could do worse than look (and listen) over here....

Hodges' model provides a person-centred, situated and multicontextual framework (across health and social care) that can be employed explicitly or implicitly. The model would also greatly benefit from and needs research and development.

While some of the comments in response to this on the HSJ site may reflect the current political-public pyrexia, perhaps they also demonstrate the need for a structured approach - an integrative and collaborative model?
