This report looks at how different sectors can collaborate to create services and pathways that meet the holistic needs of patients

Networks and partnerships are critically important in a People Powered Health approach. There is a wealth of expertise and knowledge about how to identify
and meet the needs of patients across the NHS, social care providers and third sector organisations.

In a People Powered Health approach, such knowledge and expertise needs to be brought together to commission, design and deliver holistic, integrated healthcare services. This is done not from the perspectives of existing institutions or services but from the perspective of what patients need to improve their overall health and wellbeing, which may include completely new services. Networks that Work: Partnerships for Integrated Care and Services is one in a series of learning products which explain why People Powered Health works, what it looks like and the key features needed to replicate success elsewhere.

Key Findings:
• This report shows how consortia work in practice, what the barriers are and how these barriers can be overcome.
• Case studies detail how networks can support the integration of care and services in different ways, including commissioning services together, providing services together and delivering services together.
• The work of the People Powered Health teams has shown that three core actions are necessary for partnerships to be successful – establishing a common purpose, developing a shared culture and enabling information sharing and open dialogue.

With life expectancies increasing by five hours a day and Baby Boomers entering their later years, our assumptions about ageing and who is ‘old’ are fundamentally challenged. Moving beyond chronology as a way of understanding age will be a key shift as we move to an older society. And we need to innovate to enable us to adapt to an ageing population, including recreating our social institutions and creating ways for people to help one another to harness the opportunities of an ageing society and enable all of us to age better.

This report sets out Nesta’s thoughts on the impact of ageing on society and what that means in terms of innovation. It makes the case for a systematic look at how we live in the context of changing demographics, with a priority on the issues which have most impact on older people’s lives

Our public services are not set up to cope with the ageing population. It is important that we harness innovation more effectively to overcome this new challenge.

Preparing for ageing, describes the challenge of an ageing society, assesses the role that innovation is currently playing in meeting this challenge, and identifies where innovation needs to be harnessed more fully.

It covers the public, private and voluntary sectors, across five areas: housing; the local environment; health and social care; personal finance; and social inclusion.

The research is a summary based on a full report commissioned by NESTA from Deloitte.

Created by Nesta in partnership with UnLtd, the Rooted guide provides clear, step-by-step practical advice and resources for people considering starting up their own social or community-run venture.

People retiring from the workplace often feel that their views are no longer heard, or that they have been placed on the scrap heap. However, we know that individuals want to continue to earn, learn and use their skills and expertise in new creative and enterprising ways.

That’s why we have created this resource, to support people who have the passion and seed of a good idea, but are unsure where to start.

Over the past few years there has been growing interest in systemic innovation. We are defining this as an interconnected set of innovations, where each influences the other, with innovation both in the parts of the system and in the ways in which they interconnect.

Yet rather than simply theorising, we want to make this practical. We want to explore the potential of systemic innovation to help tackle some of the key challenges the UK currently faces, from supporting an ageing population to tackling unemployment.

This paper is intended to generate discussion. We want to engage with the wide and diverse range of experts already working this space to help sharpen up thinking about systemic innovation and influence practical work to advance it.
