From vision to action. Making patient-centred care a reality – Richmond Group of Charities [UK] – 2012

“When our ten leading health and social care charities published our joint view on how high-quality, patient-centred, cost-effective care could be delivered, we were surprised how aligned our thinking was. We agreed five themes on which the post-reform NHS should be based
and within which productivity gains are possible:
• co-ordinated care
• patients engaged in decisions about their care
• supported self-management
• prevention, early diagnosis and intervention
• emotional, psychological and practical support.

Our shared vision has yet to be delivered. The Health Select Committee recently warned the government that if standards of quality and access are to be maintained, system redesign is needed, rather than salami-slicing existing services or incremental improvement (House of Commons Health Committee 2012). We agree.

As leading charities that both advocate for and support the care of people with health and social care needs, we renew our commitment to working with colleagues locally and nationally, in policy and in service delivery, to build a sustainable model for the NHS and its partners.”
