A report has been published concerning the “Realising the Value Programme”, which in turn supplies the theoretical background for NHS England’s “Health as a Social Movement” programme. This report explores the concept of people and communities being put at the heart of health, to support of the NHS Five Year Forward View vision of a more sustainable NHS.
The Realising the Value programme is funded by NHS England.
