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

Extract from the foreword:

“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.

How to deliver high-quality, patient-centred, cost-effective care. Consensus solutions from the voluntary sector – Richmond Group of Charities [UK] – 2010

Extract from the introduction:

“This publication is the collective effort of ten of the leading health and social care organisations in the voluntary sector.

•supported self-management
•prevention, early diagnosis and intervention
•emotional, psychological and practical support”
