Setting policy priorities
National Voices has a number of key themes, to which all our members are committed. These provide a framework around which we base our policy development work:
- Voice, choice and involvement: We want stronger patient, service user and public voice in the design and delivery of services.
- A seamless service: We want more coordinated design and delvery of services and better transitions
- Right care, right time, right place: We want fewer hospital stays, better primary and community services and improved support for those with long term conditions
- Fairness and justice: We want a better deal for people who are disadvantaged because of their condition, disability, where they live, their age, ethnicity or the setting of their care.
- Safety and quality: We want to see a stronger culture of quality improvement and safety, and a focus on people’s experiences of care as a fundamental dimension of quality
Our influencing priorities are constantly evolving. They reflect:
- two way discussions with our members about what matters most to them
- issues which are common to many of our members but do not duplicate the specific work of each member organisation
- the expertise and momentum National Voices has built on particular issues
- the changing external environment and emerging opportunities to maximise our impact
