Patients and communities

Blurred croud

We're working with partners across the NHS and voluntary sector to support your efforts to engage with and involve patients and communities in planning, developing and delivering sustainable, person-centred services.

Through our work programme, we aim to:
  • support you to harness patient, community and workforce assets in achieving sustainable, innovative change
  • model good practice from patient-led partnerships and initiatives
  • promote co-production and patient leaders and leadership as integral parts of system leadership across health and social care
  • advocate supported self-management and support patients to take increasingly active roles in healthcare, such as managing personal health budgets (PHBs).

Patient leadership and partnership

A duo of knowledge-sharing events (details below) kicked off our work programme last year. Further events and resources will be launched over the coming months.
