What is the point of the SHA?

Internal governance

I just want to be part of a club of Labour members who are interested in health policy and can organise and take part in discussions, debates and campaigns. I do not think the SHA needs to, or should try to have “a policy” – least of all a policy that 75% of a group agrees to. Why? We don’t have any executive powers, and no one outside our own circle is interested in what our policy is.

The “policy” that I am interested in debating is the policy of the Labour party. Individuals who join the SHA can take part in a range of activities to influence it. All we need for a constitution is a way to arrange meetings and have an account and presumably some way of holding the Director to account.
