NAVCA publishes Health case studies report

NAVCA News - Thu, 17/04/2014 - 13:10

NAVCA has published a new report containing case studies to accompany the three research briefings published last month that explore local charities and voluntary organisations attitudes and experiences of local health organisations. The case studies illustrate NAVCA members work to influence Joint Strategic Needs Assessments (JSNA) and the nature of their relationship with local clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) and local Healthwatch.

The report is the product of work between NAVCA and 12 of its members between October 2013 and March 2014. The case studies provide additional intelligence, regarding infrastructure organisations’ involvement in the emerging local health structures. The case studies aim to show examples of what is working well, what challenges there are, and how sector involvement differs around the country.
