Dear Meredith Vivian

Recent events in Camden and elsewhere have raised concern about CPPIH compliance with Statutory Instrument. A call for an Independent Public Inquiry has been made.

Three questions for you arise out of this:

  1. How many Patient Forums allocated their budgets last year for the period 2004-2005?
  2. How much money was allocated in these budgets?
  3. What number of hours support can the average Forum expect?

This an open letter and I will publish your response on the PPIFO website.

Yours sincerely

Nick Green
