Towards a Social Model for Health

We often hear about the strain on the NHS: rising demand with limited finances. The NHS has a five year plan for change, and one of the main changes planned is for greater patient involvement and greater public participation. This is where the RSA’s work, bringing together leaders from across healthcare to realise what a participative, empowering and social model for health could look like is key to helping to achieving the highest quality healthcare system, and one that is adaptive to the changing world where longevity is the norm and networks are how collective priorities get made.
