To all our members, new and existing, I hope you enjoy reading.

It has been an exciting and busy few weeks for the Coalition. Our most recent meeting brought together our partners and co-production group members to share their work and best practice. It was great to see so many people in the room who were all so dedicated to their work on person-centred care. Over the next few months you will hear from our partners who presented their exciting work on the day – this starts with Dr David Paynton’s blog, which you can read more about below.

We also took some time out of the office to exhibit and present a session at the recent Health+Care show at London’s ExCel. Over the course of two days we spoke to hundreds of people, and signed up nearly 250 as new members.

Finally, over this week alone, I have attended numerous events, and spoken with 11 partners, all of whom are taking part in innovative programmes which will see real results on the ground, plus countless people and community members, GPs, social workers and other frontline practitioners about the three Cs.

News and Events

Collaborative Care and Support Planning - A Clinician's Perspective 

Dr David Paynton writes for our blog this week, to discuss the revolution starting to sweep through general practice. 

Faced an endless tide of demands, clinicians are now beginning to test out new ways of working, developing proactive care plans with people living with or caring for people with long-term conditions and changing the conversation from 'how can I help' to 'what is important to you'.

David explains the need to look to different models of care and how this is working in practice. You can find David's blog here.

A Co-production Model

We are delighted to unveil our brand new Co-production Model, which on a single-side of A4 explains what co-production is,  the five values that need to be present in an organisation to make co-production possible and seven steps to implementation.

Co-production is one of our 'three Cs' and we believe change can only be achieved if people, families and communities are involved as equal partners at every stage of decision-making, commissioning, service design and delivery.  For more information and to download the tool, click here.

Masterclass for Health and Housing

The new NHS Alliance and Chartered Institute of Housing are offering a new action research programme for a limited number of health and housing professionals working within the same locality to learn, innovate and implement new services together.

This is a fast-track programme designed to achieve rapid change in service design between the NHS and core community based partners as a key strand of the new models of care programme. The programme is open to CCGs, GP federations, providers and public health and will run for a period of 10 months from October 2016 to July 2017. To find out more, click here.

Partners Meeting

On Thursday 9 June 2016, we hosted a meeting of C4CC partners and Co-production group members at the Coin Street Neighbourhood Centre.  

The aim of the day was to provide an update for partners since our January and March meetings, build relationships and networks that will enable partners to collaborative and build capacity to make the change we want to see through the three Cs and for partners to share some of the approaches and initiatives being worked on in their organisations, such as the one detailed by David Paynton above.

Look out for further blogs from Community Catalysts and Royal College of Physicians coming soon.

Positive Ageing and Resilience Training (PART) 

Positive Ageing and Resilience Training is a free course which is designed to help people to learn some simple but effective ways of doing that. PART is designed to support people to build their resilience to some of the big changes later in life, such as retirement, getting a long-term illness, becoming a carer or bereavement. 

There are two ways of accessing this course - at the Southville Centre in Bristol from the 20th September for six afternoons or as a webinar in the evening over four weeks, starting on 6th October.  This is available to people anywhere in the UK. To find out more, click here.

How Spice Time Credits Are Creating System Change 

C4CC partner, Spice has released a report explaining the social impact of Time Credits at the individual, organisational and community level and how these impacts can, over time, accumulate to shift relationships and transform system.

David Russell, Head of Development and Policy at Spice, writes for our blog explaining the results of their survey and the five fundamentals that underpin good collaboration. To read the blog and access the full report click here.

Health+Care 2016

We spent two days at the end of June at the Health+Care 2016 conference. Over the course of two days we talked to hundreds of interested people, signed up more than 250 new members and held a packed-out session on 'Making collaborative, integrated person-centred care a reality with the three Cs'.

One visitor to our stand has since emailed to say that those he spoke to on our stand were inspirational - their passion for C4CC and what it stands for in particular. 

It was a very productive two days and we look forward to following up with new contacts and members.
