New opportunity to improve health care through collaborative communities

The Health Foundation has announced a new £2.1m programme for partnerships developing collaborative communities where people, families, health care professionals and researchers work together to improve health care.

The Common Ambition programme will support up to five ambitious teams across the UK to work towards a shared aim: to build sustainable change across health care through collaboration between those who use services and those who deliver them.

Social Return on Investment (SROI) report

Health and social care services in North and West London are building positive new models of cross-sector working to make better use of joined-up resources. The Self-Care social prescribing model has led to reduced avoidable need for hospitalisations, reduced need for GP practice hours, and reduced levels of physical pain and depression for patients.
