Welcome to the New NHS Alliance

New NHS Alliance is a movement of people and organisations who are committed to building a sustainable, community-based health service. We have a particular focus on reducing health inequalities and on making the practice of health creation a core part of the UK healthcare system.

New NHS Alliance 2017 Action Summit

We are delighted that Secretary of State Rt Hon Jeremy Hunt is a confirmed speaker. This year’s Summit will also feature Duncan Selbie, CEO Public Health England and will be chaired by Victoria Macdonald, Channel 4 Health and Social Care Correspondent. It is also supported by compelling case studies and people with lived experience including:

  • Michael Macdonnell, Strategy Director, NHS England
  • Prof Eve Mytleton-Kelly, Director, Complexity Research Group, London School of Economics and Political Science
  • Jos De Bloc, CEO Buurtzorg, Netherlands

  • Norman McKinley, UK Director of Operations, British Red Cross
  • Sophie Staniszewska, RCN Research Unit, Warwick University

  • Noel Mathias, Managing Director, WeVolution

The event will challenge attendees to understand why they need to invest in and practice Health Creation, how the 3 Cs of Health Creation – Control, Contact and Confidence – can contribute to improving the population’s health and economic wellbeing, what the financial arguments are for it and how it may reduce demand on the formal health service.

Our dynamic agenda also includes six interactive ‘Excellence Exchange’ Break-out sessions  These will enable delegates to tailor their learning to meet their needs. The Summit will also feature an exhibition area – ideal for networking and learning more from our highly valued supporters and sponsors.

Our ground-breaking Health Creating Manifesto was launched in May 2017

It explains what Health Creation is and encourages practitioners to get started by adopting key ‘health creating’ features into their day-to-day practices. Is also sets out 10 high-impact recommendations to create a wellness-based health system to address health inequalities. A Manifesto For Health Creation calls for:

  • The adoption of health creating practices
  • System reforms to support Health Creation
  • Enhanced education on Health Creation

Read our Manifesto here: A Manifesto For Health Creation


Medical healthcare only contributes about 20% to our health outcomes and we want to explore work being done with people, patients and communities in the ‘80% zone’. There is outstanding work underway to remodel the health and care systems that will benefit everyone – to improve health and care outcomes, address health inequalities, manage demand for services and ‘humanise’ healthcare – and New NHS Alliance wants to bring this to wider attention.

‘In Search of Wellness’ will premiere at the New NHS Alliance Action Summit on 6 December 2017!

Our Values

Please join the New NHS Alliance if you agree with these values:

  • I understand that enabling people to improve their own lives is the most important aspect of a progressive healthcare system (it is more important than ‘improving existing services’)
  • I am open to learning and prepared to innovate to find different ways of working that improve people’s lives
  • I am open to working with a range of organisations, within and outside the NHS, in pursuit of better health and wellbeing outcomes
  • I recognise that people and communities are resource-rich and can hold the solution to improving and preventing poor health behaviours. I am committed to releasing this capacity by enabling people to develop greater levels of Control, Contact and Confidence (the 3Cs of health creation)
  • I recognise the emotional labour involved in caring for others and take steps to look after both professional and informal carers
  • I believe in and practice parity of esteem between patients and professionals, between the NHS and organisations that contribute to health and wellbeing outside the NHS and between those living with physical and mental health problems
