Welcome to the New NHS Alliance

New NHS Alliance is a movement of professionals and local people working in equal partnership to reverse the worsening health inequalities


New NHS Alliance achieves this by:

  • advancing the discipline of Health Creation with communities to make wellness a core part of the health and care system
  • providing a platform for people from some of the most disadvantaged communities to have a voice within the system and to inform and influence policy-makers, system leaders, providers, frontline practitioners and New NHS Alliance’s activities
  • advising widely across many sectors, multidisciplinary teams and health systems. We have deep knowledge of changing practice in general practice, pharmacy, nursing, housing, mental health, local authorities including social care and public health and commissioning


Wellness Self-Learning Programme

Supporting health creating workforce and community in a rapidly changing world

Our main desire is to enable self-organised ‘sustainable’ learning. As a social movement ourselves, we create the enabling conditions for frontline practitioners, systems leaders and communities to learn together and from each other (as well as from us).

Our Wellness Self-Learning Programme enables organisations, communities and patients, and different professional sectors to learn together; swapping insights and reflections from their own experience and learning journey. We are building an online learning platform to support information exchange on health creating practices.

We also want to promote high quality practice in Health Creation. Using our Health Creation Diagnostic Audit based on the five features of health creating practices, we can quickly assess how health creating an organisation’s practices are, providing an external benchmark and quality assurance. It also identifies strengths and weaknesses providing a baseline to inform further learning.

To learn more about our Wellness Self-Learning Programme, please contact Merron Simpson.
