Description

About this event

At this event we'll be looking at the role of communities in health and care, examining how to create sustainable community-based health and care and learning from examples where communities are taking a key role in improving and sustaining good health in their localities.
We will look at examples of:

  • community development

    where communities are strengthened so that they can improve their own health – or factors that affect their health – without necessarily relying on formal health and care services

  • community commissioning

    where communities have greater control over the commissioning of services they receive – both health and care services and other services that affect their health.

  • communities and service design

    where communities are directly involved in the choice and design of services.

  • community organisations

    in pathways of care where the scope of services the health system is able to provide is expanded, often to include those that support social rather than medical models of care.
