Yes we need to hear from the polling company that recruited people.
I suspect that the reason which will be given for the short notice and the non-disclosure of venue until the last minute will be "terrorism" but I can't see how a representative cross-section of the public could have been recruited at such short notice. People with kids and jobs can't just turn up in Birmingham for the day. I suspect the people there will have been labour party researchers or people working in PR for NuLabour (or even actors I suppose). This will be the reason they were paid in cash; no names or addresses needed to be recorded. It is very strange that absolutely no one has appeared to say how they were recruited.

Dr Ray,
The interesting thing that hasn't been answered is how were the members of the public recruited by the government?

I have lifted this comment on the "Dizzy" (www.dizzythinks.net) blog.
We need more people in the know to come forward and show how this "consultation" is being done because the results are going to be used to justify massive changes in the NHS.

As a member of a PCT informal patient consultation group, I can confirm that notices for meetings with some important characters in the Fit for the Future charade, sorry programme, are being sent out at the very last moment. This means that quite a few laypeople who know what they are talking about often have prior engagements and can't make the meetings.

But hey, the public have been invited to have their say, haven't they? Shame they couldn't make it!

In London, not only are the Health Trusts having to manage the Fit for the Future plans, they are also having to deal with Aru Darzi's mom-and-apple pie suggestions - well, why wouldn't the DoH run two similar processes at not quite the same time, proposing much of the same thing, but requiring lots of management time that might be better spent trying to run the Health Services?
