More than any other previous government policy this latest white paper has been developed through consultation, listening and providing people with opportunities to say what they wanted. Here I outline why factors such as these and most importantly collaboration and trust will be key to the successful translation of the policy into practice.
Some excellent thoughts from Headshift on the new white paper ‘Our Health, Our Care, Our Say: A New Direction for Community Services’ by Stuart Hall and Lee Bryant.
This week the government published plans to change the whole health and social care system in the White Paper: Our health, our care, our say. The plans include longer opening hours for GPs, a greater emphasis on looking after your own well-being and health care available on the High Street.
