New report from People and Communities Board sets out six priorities for NHS England

The People and Communities Board has published a series of "high impact actions" it hopes will accelerate the adoption of person- and community-centred approaches to health and care. The Board's report to the Chief Executive of NHS England, "A new relationship with people and communities", sets out six key actions that will help deliver Chapter Two of the Five Year Forward View, which set out the vision of a health and care system which fully engages people in their health, care and wellbeing.

The key recommendations are

  1. Make person-centred, community-focussed approaches part of normal business
  2. Make a clear commitment to develop new, simplified, cross-sector outcome measures
  3. Support a small number of super demonstrator sites willing to develop person- and community-centred approaches at scale
  4. Clarify the key success factors for social prescribing
  5. Revive and champion the Inclusion Health agenda
  6. Commission under a framework agreement a pool of preferred VCSE partners able to support person-centred, community-focussed interventions in defined geographical areas
