Submission to the Health and Social Care Select Committee Inquiry on ‘Delivering core NHS and care services during the pandemic and beyond’
- Person-centred care
- Primary care
In this submission we set out what we see as the primary ongoing health and care needs during the acute and next phases of the crisis, focusing on some major conditions as well as mental health and health inequalities. For us, the key is active citizen engagement with patients, their families and carers, so that policymakers understand the impact of recent and future system-wide changes and ensure that people’s rights are respected. In order to know which changes are welcome and should be retained, and what is not working for people and needs to be set aside, it is essential that health policymakers and providers at all levels engage patients in a meaningful coproduction process.
