Regulating the regulators!

Participated in a breakfast meeting on 'Putting the public into public services: engaging people in scrutiny', at the National Consumer Council's London headquarters today.

The basis of the meeting was around how better regulation could lead to better citizen engagement and the audience were a mixture of those from regulatory bodies, the public sector and consumer bodies. The initial presentations were good from Abena Dadze-Arthur from NCC, Anna Walker from the Healthcare Commission and Phil Morgan from TPAS putting useful context on the debate.
