Prioritising person-centred care – the evidence – National Voices [UK]

“In these pages you can find the evidence from 779 systematic reviews of ways to make person centred care happen.

We provide accessible and accurate information so commissioners, health professionals and service-user groups can see what works best and how to invest time and resources.

Patients, service users and carers want continuity of care, smooth transitions between care settings, and services that are responsive to all their needs together.

The Health and Social Care Bill 2011 will give the key commissioning and regulatory organisations in England duties to secure or promote integrated services. We, as organisations representing the interests of patients, service users and carers, want integrated care to develop quickly and at scale.
