Leadership for Health Creation

New NHS Alliance has been commissioned by Greater Manchester (GM) Health and Social Care Partnership to generate a set of materials to support leaders of the new multi-disciplinary Integrated Neighbourhood Teams and other community-based leaders across GM to achieve a permanent shift in culture and practice towards ‘person and community-centred approaches’, also known as health creating approaches or practices.

In practice this requires a new relationship with people using services, patients, citizens and the communities they live within. When supporting people needing health and care services it means focusing from the outset on strengths and assets as well as the problem, thinking beyond the clinical and care package to what are often described as ‘more than medicine solutions’ and giving choice and control to the individual and their family and carers recognising that they know what works for them. It also means recognising the health benefits of being meaningfully connected to others and taking care to make sure people are connected, rather than being socially isolated. These new behaviours and practices should all be underpinned by a shift in decision making away from public service institutions into communities, placing much greater control of public service funding into those communities and so creating a culture of community collaboration.

The project involves significant co-design with key Greater Manchester practitioners and leaders and we are also undertaking this survey of New NHS Alliance members to capture a broader range of input.  

Wherever you sit within the Health, Social Care, Housing, VCSE or Community Sector, we would like to hear your views. Please spare a few minutes to complete this survey – your contribution will help to shape better materials for both formal and community leaders to draw on both within and outside Greater Manchester.

The deadline for completion is Monday 24th June 2019.
