“The health sector needs to learn how to work with patient leaders” Tessa Richards The BMJ Dec 2017

“The concept of patient leadership is emerging as one important new way of working collaboratively with patients and carers…Patient and carer leaders can raise the profile of improving experience of care and can have a real impact on action being taken in response to patient and carer feedback.” NHS England

“Patient leaders bring a credible voice, and can work with system leaders to create a compelling case for change. This gives the system ‘permission to act’. Patient leaders influence health services’ priorities, placing a greater emphasis on the experience of care. Patient leaders can help to design services on the ground, and when system leaders involve patient leaders and carers in this service design, they are able to focus more closely on what patients and carers want.” NHS England

This national summit chaired and co-produced with Jonathon Hope Patient & Co-Chair ‘Realising the Value of Individuals - Increasing Participation in CKD’ UK Renal Registry will focus on the important issue of Patient Leadership and how you can support patients in your organization to co-design and improve services, how you can help patients to develop patient leadership skills and how to effectively work with patient leaders.

In recent years, NHS policy makers and leaders have increasingly moved towards engaging and involving patients, not only in their care but also in the design of services. Reports such as ‘no decision without me’ and ‘increasing accountability’ have come to symbolise the need for patients and professionals to work more closely together. In the Five Year Forward View the NHS clearly committed to directly ‘engaging} with communities and citizens in new ways, involving them directly in decisions about the future of health and care services’.

Increasingly, in response to this call to action and the growing pressure on services, organisations across the NHS are turning to patients to gain irreplaceable insight into how organisations, services and cultures need to be changed. Increasingly, Patient Leaders are at the forefront of this change, building collaborative relationships with fellow patients, trusts and community services, especially in areas of patient experience and patient engagement. Work is being done by the King’s Fund, the NHS, the Coalition for Collaborative Care and many trusts across the NHS to explore the concept of Patient Leadership and to develop Patient Leadership programmes.

This national summit, one of the first in the UK on the subject of Patient Leadership  will provide you with essential advice, tips and practical solutions to implement patient leadership within your service. The conference features presentations and extended workshops from patient leaders who have made a difference in practice, and organisations that have established patient leadership as a core part of their culture. There will also be an extended
focus on developing training in patient leadership and implementing a patient leadership programme in your service.
