This event will share the latest practice and learning on personalised care, bringing together people with lived experience, the NHS, local government and the voluntary community sector, to discuss what personalisation means in the context of Covid-19.
The report, ‘Health Inequalities, the Covid Vaccination & Community-Centred Approaches’, unpacks some of the most pervasive issues leading to low vaccine take-up in certain groups across the UK and, importantly, highlights ways to overcome the most prevalent barriers to health equality.
The Coalition for Personalised Care (C4PC) has released a report identifying key issues in tackling COVID vaccine hesitancy and reluctance. It is hoped that the insight gathered will improve understanding within the NHS, Department of Health and Social Care and Ministry of Housing Communities and Local Government of how best to influence vaccine take-up.
Amongst growing concern that health inequalities in the U.K. are adversely affecting the roll-out of the national Covid vaccination programme, C4PC is drawing together a broad range of partner organisations to provide valuable insight from a range of perspectives which could help to tackle the issue. We'll be sharing the findings immediately after the event.
The Coalition has launched a series of new workstreams as we begin to implement a year of action on the roll out of personalised care. The first three priorities are health inequalities, the treatment backlog and the patient experience of health and care during the pandemic. The workstreams will develop practical outputs which are of use widely across health and social care.
Ian McCreath, Personalisation Lead at the Alzheimer's Society, explores how COVID-19 has impacted on the priorities for personalised care for people living with dementia. His blog encourages you to add your voice and ideas to their enquiry.
In this blog Sian Lockwood, Chair of the Coalition's Social-Prescribing Subgroup, shares her reflections after members of the Coalition for Personalised Care came together to share their experiences through the Covid-19 pandemic, and their thoughts about the future.
