What is Personalised and Person-Centred Care?
Personalised Care represents a major shift in how our NHS will approach our health and care. As patients, we have more access to information and knowledge about our health than ever before. Many of us walk into our appointments having carried out internet research (which can be a good or bad thing! ), and we will have spoken to friends, family and colleagues and feel informed.
Towards the other end of the spectrum, more economically disadvantaged people will face a myriad of factors influencing their health that widen the gap of health inequalities.
