This report brings together practical learning and evidence on using co-design and co-delivery to create a health system driven by the people within it. It uses some key case studies to demonstrate how and why the People Powered Health Approach - people and community groups working as equals with commissioner and providers - is successful. The challenge is to harness collaborative working culture and spread and embed it in new settings, including it as standard in primary care and acute services and in service governance. Care planning, pathway planning and wellbeing planning enable patients to identify their own goals and aspirations, and to navigate the services that will help to achieve them.
