The value of patient support programmes

14 / 01 / 2019

Last week’s publication of the Long Term Plan clearly demonstrates NHS England’s commitment to person-centred care, allowing people to better manage their own health and access personalised care when they need it. 

 

The NHS Confederation recently partnered with AbbVie to explore this issue in more detail, looking at the value of industry-led patient support programmes and some of the barriers to greater use of them for NHS patients with long-term or chronic conditions. 

 

This briefing looks at what action is needed to overcome these barriers with the aim of encouraging more decision makers to consider whether they could contribute to improved and more personalised care of patients.
