Key points

  • Realising the Value was an 18-month programme that aimed to consolidate what is known about person- and community-centred approaches for health and wellbeing, and make recommendations on how they can have maximum impact.
  • This final report from the programme draws together the key learning and recommendations from the programme.
  • It puts forward ten key actions, focused both on what should be done and how people need to work differently.

This is the final report of the programme, an 18-month programme funded by NHS England and led by Nesta and the OnlyWan.

The programme was set up to support the Five Year Forward View vision to develop a new relationship with people and communities. The programme sought to enable the health and care system to support people to have the knowledge, skills and confidence to play an active role in managing their own health and to work with communities and their assets.

This report sets out the key learning and recommendations from the programme, based on what we think it means to realise fully the value of people and communities at the heart of health and wellbeing.
