About this group

This Reimagining Health and Care Special Interest Group is for people actively working to explore how we might reimagine our health care system to recognise individuals and communities as health producing. Inspired by the success of organisations like Buurtzorg the group will address how we can connect people to purpose, welcome the whole person at work and reinvent the structures and systems to support this change.

It feels like we are at a tipping point. These ways are entering the mainstream and will become subject to the usual pressures from the existing system to conform and preserve the current paradigm. We are pleased to announce our new series of webinars, sharing our experiences and learning of working in this way.

Our webinar in January featured Brendan from Buurtzorg UK, you can watch the recording here

On 13th February 2020  Katie Rose talked about the Buurtzorg inspired approach which redesigned children’s services to enable social workers to prioritise relationships with children and their families. See the recording here
