Community health champions: creating new relationships with patients and communities

This factsheet introduces the community health champion approach to engaging communities. Altogether Better has been working to share learning about the community health champion model and increase the voice of patients and communities in shaping health and social care services. Working in partnership with the NHS Confederation, Altogether Better aims to develop a network of community health champions across England, support localities to replicate the values and principles of the community health champion model, and respond positively to some of the important questions and challenges which need to be addressed by health leaders, decision-makers and commissioners.
