Enabling patient leaders to work collaboratively with the NHS through co-production

Follow the conference on Twitter #patientleadership

“Co-production is for the whole of the NHS. It is how we should all be working – doing with and not for, or to, people – not just sometimes, but all the time.  One idea that exemplified co-production, in which there is increasing interest, is that of working with patient and carer leaders. Now is a good time to join up our thinking about co-production and patient leadership. If co-production is how we should do everything, then patient leadership enables us to have co-produced system leadership to support continued improvement in experience and clinical quality based on what matters most to people.” David McNally Head of Experience of Care NHS England, 2017

Although the roots of co-design and co-production date back to the 80’s and 90’s, in recent years, more and more organisation in health and social care have begun to see ‘co-design’ and ‘co-production’ as THE ‘go to’ methodology for giving patients, carers and communities a greater say and role in designing, re-designing and delivering services.

Ever since the Wanless report (2002) leaders in health and social care have recognised the need to engage the public, patients and carers more directly in their own care. However, since then, a new priority has emerged, embodied within the NHS Constitution (2009), which states “You have the right to be involved, directly or through representatives, in the planning of healthcare services etc.” Subsequently, the Five Year Forward View (2014) admitted that “{the NHS} has not fully harnessed the renewable energy represented by patients and communities” and at the same time, made a commitment to forge ‘A new relationship with patients and communities’. In response, the terms ‘co-design’ and ‘co-production’ have come to increasingly embody this new compact – the desire to deeply engage patients, carers and the community in the design and where possible, the delivery of services.

When fully embraced, this approach to service design or delivery, enables organisations to take more traditional PPI approaches to the next level and genuine partner and share power with ‘experts by experience’. Another strength of the methodology of co-design and co-production is that it is an asset based approach and offers the opportunity for patients, carers, patient leaders and communities to build skills and experience in working in partnership with health and social care organisations.

Pioneering work in this area have been carried out by Nesta, the Coalition for Collaborative Care, the Scottish Executive, NHS England, The Health Foundation, NEF, National Voices and the King’s Fund to name a few – and all have begun to forge new exemplars and ‘best practice’ models of co-design and co-production.

At this conference you will hear from a range of leaders in the field of co-design and co-production, you will also have the opportunity to start to consider how your organisation can began to plan a co-designed event to start to utilise the renewable energy of your patients, carers and patient leaders
