The founding principles of the NHS are at risk. The healthcare system as we know it cannot cope with the demands of the 21st century – growing populations, living with more complex conditions.
We believe the solutions lie not inside hospitals, but outside in our communities. We should use the opportunities of the latest health integration to work alongside communities – who are experts in their own conditions. We should give them the power to change the circumstances that lead to ill-health, and support their neighbours to do the same.
