A Local Involvement Network (LINk) is a network of local people and groups who have joined forces to improve health and social care services by listening to people like you. They're independent of the local council and the NHS and exist throughout England. There's a LINk local to where you live.
LINks began in April 2008. They give everyone the chance to have a say in how health and social care services are planned, delivered and reviewed.
The job of LINKs is to listen to the public and pass on what they find to the NHS and Social Services departments.
You can get involved in a way that suits you. You do not have to join a committee or commit lots of time in order to be involved in LINks.
Regardless of your age, background or situation, the LINk wants to hear from you.
