The New NHS Alliance is a values-led movement of people and organisations committed to building a sustainable, community-based health service. Expanding beyond its core roots in general practice and primary care, the Alliance embraces a wide range of professional sectors and is focused on health inequalities and the practice of health creation. Neither professional body nor trade union, it is open-minded, people-centred and solutions-focused and bringing together a more than 10,000 passionate individuals and organisations.

Our mission is … to infect the UK health sector with wellness

In May 2017, we launched ‘A Manifesto For Health Creation’

  • This ground-breaking Manifesto sets out 10 high impact recommendations to create a wellness-based health system, aimed at tackling the continuing problem and social injustice of health inequalities.
  • This Manifesto is different. It is not more of the same, but a way of creating health that decreases dependency, increases people’s resilience and reduces their demands on traditional health and care services.
  • We hope our Manifesto inspires you to adopt health creating practices – and to join the New NHS Alliance and the Health Creation movement!

A Manifesto For Health Creation

We want to make Health Creation and health creating practices a core part of the UK healthcare system alongside a greater focus on prevention. We believe that this is the best way to reduce health inequalities and deliver a sustainable health service.

We are in the business of creating conditions for the NHS and other organisations to adopt and practice health creation and we will do this by:

  • Raising understanding of health creation and supporting the development of health creating practices – so that communities, families and individuals are increasing their levels of the 3Cs
  • Promoting and supporting innovation in health and new, more effective and efficient models for primary and community care
  • Supporting collaboration across health, care, housing and beyond to secure better outcome for people and communities
  • Reducing and overcoming barriers that inhibit innovation, collaboration between organisations and the adoption of place-based models of care
  • Supporting emergence of new styles of leadership within the health sector, enabling a wider range of organisations and communities themselves to become active participants in the healthcare system
  • Influencing government policy and programmes to create a national framework in which health-creating and preventative healthcare is supported
