Get involved – Influence policy

We regularly seek HCSA members’ views to help us influence consultations and inquiries in Westminster, the devolved nations, and other organisations. 

Open consultations
Submitted consultations

We monitor and comment on relevant legislation being considered in order to inform and influence legislation. Our responses aim to represent members’ views and provide an expert perspective to influence decision-makers.

Make your voice heard by responding to consultations.

Please email any comments you wish to be considered for open consultations to Dr Leanne-Marie McCarthy-Cotter.

Alongside your comments, please include the following details:

  • Title of consultation
  • Your name
  • HCSA membership number (if applicable)
  • Your contact details

Please note that our response will be written some time before the consultation submission deadline. Therefore, please send any comments as early as possible.

Alternatively, you can submit evidence as an individual. For tips and advice on how to do this, email Dr Leanne-Marie McCarthy-Cotter.
