NESTA call for coproduction of health services in long term conditions

Call for ideas on coproduction of innovative services that focus on conditions associated with high levels of health spending, including cardio-vascular diseases, diabetes, mental health conditions, musculoskeletal diseases, cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

People Powered Health is a new programme from NESTA, working with the Innovation Unit, to support the design and delivery of innovative services for people that are living with long term health conditions.

Over the next twenty months, it will provide investment and support (£100,000 plus 20 days of bespoke external support; no budget for clinician time included) to partnerships of commissioners, providers and consumers of health and social care services to develop innovative solutions that achieve better outcomes for people living with long term health conditions  and reduce the pressure on health services.

This is not a traditional grant programme and NESTA is not asking you to start new initiatives that meet these criteria. They are aware that a number of organisations across the country are already working to apply the principles of coproduction to their service design, commissioning and delivery. They want to support and build on this pioneering practice as well as stimulate new organisations to adopt this approach to innovation.

They are particularly interested in ideas that focus on conditions associated with high levels of health spending, including cardio-vascular diseases, diabetes, mental health conditions, musculoskeletal diseases, cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. They are also open to proposals that aim to address other conditions and/or co morbidity

The focus of the programme is the concept of coproduction – that people’s needs are better met when they are involved in an equal and reciprocal relationship with professionals, working together to get things done. 

The first stage is an open call for ideas where we hope to hear from organisations like yours that share our ambition and have ideas for how the concept of coproduction can be applied at scale.
