The NHS Citizen project team has now published the design for NHS Citizen on a new microsite.
For the last year and a half, the project team has been working on developing and designing NHS Citizen – commissioned by NHS England to develop a blueprint for how citizens can play a more active role in NHS England’s decision making. This design has been done in the open by collaborating with citizens and health professionals. On the new microsite, the team share the current working model, including the design principles, the technology infrastructure, the work on culture change and citizenship, the research behind it all and much more – please take a look and let us know what you think.
Now, this part of the design phase for NHS Citizen has come to an end and the build phase commences. There’s still plenty more work to be done and NHS Citizen will continue to develop and evolve over time; for instance, some key areas in need of further development are highlighted in the “What is next for NHS Citizen?” on the microsite. In this new phase, the work will really start to make NHS Citizen into a living and functioning system, or as Olivia Butterworth (Head of Public Voice for NHS England) puts it, we “can begin to make this a reality in our day-today working practice; changing the conversation.”
