What is NHS Personalised Care?
Personalised care represents a new relationship between people, professionals and the system. Working closely with partners, the NHS will roll out personalised care to reach 2.5 million people by 2023/24 and then aim to double that again within a decade.
C&P Supervision Framework Guidelines
Dr Mark Brookes, Personalised Care Clinical Lead, has collated supervision recommendations for Social Prescribers to support Cambridgeshire and Peterborough practices and their staff. These recommendations are aligned to the specifications under the NHS Network Contract DES contract specification 2022/23 – PCN requirements and entitlements and local needs.
Personalised Care Institute
The Personalised Care Institute is a virtual organisation, accountable for setting the standards for evidence-based training in personalised care in England. Their goal is to equip health and care professionals with the knowledge, skills and confidence to help patients get more involved in decisions about their care. Evidence shows this leads to better health outcomes and increased patient and clinician satisfaction.
Personalised Care in PCNs
The three roles of Social Prescribing Link Worker, Care Coordinator and Health & Wellbeing Coach reduce and support the workload of GPs and other staff by supporting people to take more control of their health and wellbeing and addressing wider detriments of health, such as poor housing, debt, stress and loneliness. These roles are intended to become an integral part of the core general practice throughout England, embedding personalised care within PCNs and supporting all professionals to take a personalised care approach.
It is important to work with people in a way that, as far as possible, avoids them becoming dependent on primary care and encourages them to self-manage their own care and support as much as they can; this is Supported self-management (SSM). As a result, people have improved lives, benefit from timely access to health services, and are supported to develop the skills and confidence to manage their own health and wellbeing.
