New Care Models and Prevention: An Integral Partnership

On 31st May the NHS Confederation published a report in the New Care Models and Prevention: An Integral Partnership. The publication reported works of vanguards for the prevention and reduction of health inequalities in local area. It was a part of a vanguard dissemination programme.

The new models of Care and Prevention: An Integral Partnership aims to help spread the learning from the vanguard programme across healthcare sector in the UK. It is a joint effort of NHS Confederation, NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups, NHS Providers and Local Government Association.

The reports contain five case studies on the emerging practice rather evaluated practice. Each vanguard approaches care planning with the understanding of local people needs, organisational and professional boundaries for patient care. The plans are also based on the number of staffs on board, experiences of both the patients and carers along with volunteers and associated third party.

Two vanguards are looking forward to developing new care models and in June it will be approaching staff engagement in healthcare.
