What are we working on?

To support members to adopt population health approaches, and engage with patients and the public, we are focusing on:

  • providing support to improve public and patient engagement
  • supporting member to adopt population health approaches

Public and patient engagement

Engaging with patients and the public as active rather than passive participants in their care can improve service design and help them better manage their conditions thereby reducing the pressure on urgent and emergency care services.

Current work highlights

Health Education England has commissioned us to run a project to challenge and support arm’s-length bodies to improve strategic thinking about patient and public engagement.

Population health approaches

The Five Year Forward View sights prevention as a key goal for the NHS going forward; the ability to take a population health approach to healthcare planning is crucial to achieving this goal. 

Current work highlights

As part of a wider project, aimed at supporting members to meet the National Outcomes Framework, we are looking at the opportunities and challenges faced by health economies working in rural areas.
