Craegmoor Healthcare chief executive Ted Smith has called on the Government to put the individual at the centre of all health and social care policy.

In a speech to English Community Care Association (ECCA) conference – ‘Up Close & Personal’ – in November, Mr Smith described the company’s ‘Your Voice’ initiative which promotes three key actions – Ask, Listen and Do – to ensure that each and every person using a Craegmoor service feels completely empowered and involved in how the service is run.
