- Supporting patients with long term health conditions account for 70% of healthcare resources in England
- Growing evidence shows that involving patients in their care improves the delivery of services
- But a practical approach was needed, and PPL was brought in to make the national business case for “People Powered Health”
- PPL worked with Nesta and the Innovation Unit to support projects covering over 200,000 patients in: Leeds, Stockport, Newcastle, Calderdale, Earl’s Court and Lambeth
- As a result of the programme, a case is now being made to roll out the approach to “People Powered Healthcare” nationally
