More than 15 million people in the UK live with a long-term health condition. The Coalition for Collaborative Care (C4CC) was launched last week at the Future of Health Conference. This coalition of national groups and organisations aims to champion system-wide transformation in how people with long-term conditions 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”.
