Transforming Participation in Health & Care

Thu, 26 September 2013

“NHS England has given good, clear guidance on ways to ensure patients can participate in decisions about health and care. I urge health and care staff to read this and look at ways they can make partnerships with patients and citizens a reality in their patch.

Personalised care and support planning is particularly important – this improves patients’ outcomes and experience – and, at National Voices, we will be working with staff and people with long-term conditions and disabilities to develop a toolkit around this. Meanwhile, what we need to see from NHS England next is more support for health and care professionals in making real improvements across whole systems of health and care.”
