Realising the Value is funded by NHS England to make the case for a person-centred health and care system where people are more in control of their own health and wellbeing. The programme will focus on finding, testing and sharing the best existing ways that people and communities can be more in control of their health, working in partnership with health professionals and the wider community. Realising the Value will create a set of tools to allow these approaches to have national impact.
Designed for practitioners, decision-makers and influencers with an interest in person-centred care, participants at our event had the opportunity to:
- feedback on initial findings from an evidence review of person-centred approaches
- discuss and help develop our thinking on the tools, levers and barriers that influence person-centred care
- come together as a wide stakeholder community to help strengthen the case for person-centred care and build the next stages of the programme
- find out how to get involved in the programme the future.
The NHS England 'Five Year Forward View' set out a vision for the NHS to develop a new relationship with patients and communities and support people with a long-term condition to manage their own health and care.
Many different kinds of change will be needed to achieve this overall shift. Realising the Value is a part of the overall change needed, by consolidating the evidence base, setting out the system levers that need to change, considering the behavioural and cultural change required, and developing tools and resources to make commissioning and take-up of key interventions easier.
The programme builds on a large body of existing evidence and practice, which puts people at the heart of health and care and develops community-centred approaches. The aim is to bring existing practice and evidence of impact together to make the case for person-centred care.
Realising the Value is funded by NHS England and led by Nesta and the Health Foundation, working in partnership with Voluntary Voices (made up of National Voices, Regional Voices, NAVCA and Volunteering Matters), the Institute of Health and Society at Newcastle University and the Behavioural Insights Team.
