The journey so far.....
“The way healthcare is presently delivered has to be deeply reformed… The situation is becoming unsustainable and will only worsen in the future as chronic diseases and the demographic change place additional strains.”
Call for a “new healthcare delivery model based on preventative and person-centred health systems. This new model can only be achieved through proper use of ICT, in combination with appropriate organisational changes and skills.”
“Over the next few years we will give 100,000 people
with long-term conditions the opportunity to manage
their care as 'expert patients’. And during 2008 we
will bring forward a patients' prospectus that sets out
how we will extend to all 15 million patients with a
chronic or long-term condition access to a choice of
'active patient' or 'care at home' options - clinically
appropriate to them and supported by the NHS.”
