“We need to keep the emphasis on people, improving the quality and experience of care - we mustn’t let the current focus on saving money and reducing hospital admissions detract from this. 

“Local areas need support to get involvement right. The best local plans involve not just doctors and nurses but people who use services, family, carers, friends, volunteers and charities and community groups. There are some great examples of this but they are far from the norm.
