What is the biggest issue facing the health and care system? According to Alan Rosenbach, Special Policy Lead, Care Quality Commission, there are too many human and financial resources locked up in the wrong part of the system. We need to move these resources out of institutional care and into the community.

He explains that we must empower wider communities, engaging with people on local and national levels, to find out how they want to use services.

I totally agree that we need to explore new ways of developing conversations with patients and carers about the way services could be developed. The "Arts and Health" community in the UK already has very considerable experience in this area of community practice. We need to work in partnership with this group. When CMO Sir Kenneth Calman was fully aware of this possibility and tried to support this work. A key contact would now be Alexandra Coulter , Director Arts and Health South West.
