The first tranche of Patient Decision Aids was launched on 30 September 2011

In line with the ‘no decision about me, without me’ pledge made by the Secretary of State for Health, Andrew Lansley to every NHS patient, a new range of online tools have been developed to ensure patients and clinicians can work together more effectively to make the right decision, for that patient, at that time.  The Secretary of State for Health launched the first tranche of Patient Decision Aids on 30 September 2011.  A press release from NHS East of England contains more detail:
