New coalition launched to make person-centred, coordinated care a reality for people living with long-term conditions The Coalition for Collaborative Care is a group of individuals and organisations across the health, social care and voluntary sectors who want to make person-centred, coordinated care a reality for people living with long-term conditions. That means improving the relationship that people have in their day-to-day interaction with the NHS and social care so their care and support is organised around what matters to them.
We are doing this through the House of Care. The House of Care was developed and tested by the Year of Care programme and People Powered Health. It is a flexible blueprint that uses collaborative care and support planning and at the same time recognises the importance of non-medical, community-based activities and resources. This ‘more than medicine’ approach helps each person develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to manage their condition/s within a supportive community.
