Download An Uneasy Consensus 2012

Alex Fox, Shared Lives Plus Chief Executive, will address the NHS Confederation Annual Conference (20-22 June) as part of their 'Uneasy Conensus' series. Discussing micro-enterprises, a discussion paper related to the speech has now been published online(Paper 4: Working locally: micro-enterprises and building community assets).

This paper examines the lessons NHS decision makers could learn from micro-scale approaches in social care, and the place of micro-enterprise development within an integrated health, care and support system. Micro-enterprises – sole traders or small groups set up to build services around the needs of a specific group of people – and other small scale approaches to planning, purchasing and delivering health and care outcomes are becoming well established within social care. They have been proved to produce highly tailored, ‘personalised’ responses to people’s individual needs and build on individuals’ potential skills and contributions to adopting healthier, more fulfilling lives. By building on and extending people’s close relationships, they provide the potential to form bridges between the goal of individually tailored services and a desire to encourage communities to contribute more to the local health and care economy by becoming more supportive and inclusive.
