Developing patient centred care

It is important to make sure that the needs of patients are central to the development of new care models, embedding the National Voices ‘I statements’ in:

  • patient centred care planning
  • implementing integrated personalised commissioning/personal health budgets, and
  • supporting patient choice.

Some Pioneers have already made great progress in these areas. We are working with leading edge sites to:

  • develop and share good practice on patient centred care planning
  • ensure that patient choice is built into new models of care
  • integrate work on integrated personalised commissioning with new models of care
