Is devolution the future of health and social care?
DevConnect’s collection of essays edited Phil Hope and Steve Barwick with contribution from NPC.
The NHS is continuing to change as it seeks to improve clinical outcomes and public health despite post-Brexit policy paralysis and the lack of the usual biennial health legislation. At the same time, the latest wave of devolution—the advent of Metro Mayors, nine of which now serve more than 20 million people—has quietly embedded itself into the body politic.
These two trends have come together most significantly in Greater Manchester, although “health devolution” is by no means confined to this geography. This collection of essays thus poses the timely question: is devolution the future for health and social care?
A learning report, researched and authored by NPC for The Richmond Group of Charities. It captures learning from the initial stages of an approach to building meaningful collaboration between the voluntary sector and public bodies.
This report aims to support non-health charities to better understand and use the evidence about the social factors that impact on people’s health and well-being: from housing to relationships, good food to good work.
Our research for the Richmond Group of Charities and partners to inform their Doing the Right Thing project—which aims to shape health and care system reform by showcasing the voluntary and community sector's value. We assessed the strength of evidence available and developed frameworks to provide a shared language.
