   Decisions of Value

Decisions of Value is a project commissioned by the Department of Health and led by the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges and the NHS Confederation. It brings together a large amount of research to show how factors such as relationships, behaviours and environment influence decisions that impact on the value delivered and how this extends beyond Whitehall to the front-line.

   Realising the Value

This programme, sponsored by NHS England and the Health Foundation, working with Voluntary Voices, collected evidence on what good person and community-centred care looks like and the potentially wide-reaching benefits, such as better mental and physical health, cost savings and wider social value, such as strong community ties. It has developed, tested and recommended ways to embed these approaches, creating a set of tools to allow these to have national and local impact.
