‘Weak and Strong Publics: Drawing on Nancy Fraser to Explore Parental Participation in Neonatal Networks’

Wednesday 10 October 2007, 12:30-14:00. S0.98, School of Health and Social Studies

Public involvement has now become a cornerstone of the NHS. Recently this has moved beyond the individual level to include greater involvement of both patients and the public in governance. However, there is relatively little literature that has attempted to theorise, particularly at the level of corporate decision making, the process of patient and public involvement. This paper draws on the work of Nancy Fraser, and in particular her concepts of weak and strong publics, in order to explore the processes of developing parental involvement in the case of managed neonatal network boards.
