Dear CHAIN member,
We would like to draw your attention to the following information. Please pass on as appropriate. Thank you.
A major new alliance committed to improving care and support for people with long-term conditions has been launched in London today (Friday 21 November).
The Coalition for Collaborative Care (C4CC) has people with long-term health conditions at the heart of its powerful alliance and brings together some of the sector’s most influential national groups and organisations.
With more than 15 million people in the UK living with a long-term condition, the Coalition will champion a system-wide transformation in how they receive and use care and support.
This innovative new partnership will focus on re-framing the relationship between a person with long-term health conditions and the professionals supporting them. This allows the expertise of both to be used most effectively to help the person plan to manage their condition and maximise their well-being.
It will draw strongly on the House of Care developed by the Year of Care Partnerships which highlights what is required to achieve person-centred coordinated care.
