Research out last week, showing less than a quarter of people have had a real say on health and care services, chimed with the experience of End Game’s colleagues.

Ever keen to engage with local health services - and always on the lookout for a good story - three members of HSJ’s editorial team are members of foundation trusts, but only one has received any information or updates since joining.

Have their journalistic endeavours somehow landed them on a newsletter blacklist or is this how foundation trusts treat all their members? Somehow the latter sounds more plausible.
