AALA Consultation - Update 13 March 2017

We have had an excellent response to the consultation we carried out in January and February. Nearly 1400 individuals representing a broad range of stakeholders, responded to the on-line survey. In addition three meetings were held with key stakeholders in the GB home nations to allow face to face discussions. A separate survey was also sent to young people using stakeholder contacts and so far has received just over 800 responses. We are delighted with the response but this has provided us with a large amount of information and a significant number of comments to consider. Originally we planned to carry out a second phase of consultation from mid-March onwards but given the volume of information and comments it will take longer than anticipated to consider the implications of the feedback we have received. The HSE Board will now consider the full findings of this initial consultation at its meeting on 3 May before we carry out further detailed engagement with stakeholders and other interested parties.
