The Chair of the Committee of Public Accounts has said that the Health Department has not implemented its own plan for improving care for people with neurological conditions as set out in a 2005 report:
The Department [of Health] left the implementation to local health commissioners but gave them no leadership at all. It set no baselines and failed to monitor progress and so could not hold them to account where things went wrong. The present Government needs to understand what went wrong here for the future.
– Margaret Hodge MP, Chair, Committee of Public Accounts
