Young Foundation report available

The Young Foundation report on  Worcestershire’s Co-production workshops focusing on Long Term Conditions is available

It summarises findings and recommendations and features 3 interconnected elements supporting co-production:

1.      Empowerment – requiring services to shift their approach from ‘doing to’ to truly ‘working with’ patients and carers as equals by co-designing and co-delivering solutions, helping commissioners and service providers understand the problems faced by citizens and communities.
2.      Integration - building bridges between and across providers in:
-          Health and Social care;
-          Primary and Secondary care;
-          Formal and informal care;
-          NHS providers and VCS providers. 
3.    Relationships & Mutuality
Supporting a shift in the dynamics between those delivering care and those receiving care, brokering a true partnership and shared responsibility between professionals and users.
