Largest charity survey finds Five Year Forward View has way to go

NAVCA has published the Strategic Partners Survey 2015 of the Health and Care Voluntary Sector Survey, the largest charity survey of 2015.

The NHS Five Year Forward View (FYFV) stresses the role voluntary organisations play in transforming services and says that "the NHS will become a better partner with voluntary organisations and local communities." This survey helps understand how far that vision is becoming reality.

Neil Cleeveley, Chief Executive of NAVCA, said;
"The Five Year Forward View makes clear that relationships between the NHS and voluntary organisations need to improve if its vision is to be realised. This survey shows how good relationships, by giving people a greater say over their own healthcare, can improve local services."
"Our survey shows that the NHS still has plenty to do to fully realise the power of local charities to engage people in their own healthcare."
