Dr. Nick Maurice responds to Elinor Goodman
26th May 2011
To the Editors
While I recognise the risk that Elinor Goodman draws attention to in suggesting that a "health summit" (her words not mine) might attract like minded people and not address the real issues, I was suggesting that we might employ outside help.
The New Economics Foundation undertakes precisely this sort of work and could be persuaded to undertake a health and well being survey on our behalf. With their expertise I am certain that they would want to ensure that the views of a truly representative cross section of the population, such as the one I suggested in my original letter, were heard.
