    Don’t we think it’s clever to turn the issue of primary care on its head and rely on consumer input in this important area? It is patronising to think that consumers can’t describe a primary health care system that they would like:

    – with or without nurse practitioners and a range of allied health professionals;
    – intersecting neatly with the secondary and tertiary services that are essential for those with chronic conditions;
    – genuinely engaging them as partners or indeed leaders in their own health care.

    I for one am sick of reading reports and research that demand consumers or patients take responsibility for their health and well being, but the system that has been built around them prevents this.

    (And I’m the newly appointed consumer representative on the Council.)
