The Richmond Group of Charities represents more that 15 million people living with long-term health conditions and, as our population ages, this number is set to grow. One in four of us are now living with at least two health conditions. We think getting it right more people with multiple health conditions holds the key to a stronger NHS. This manifesto demonstrates why the current system doesn’t work for people living with multiple health conditions, and what a better system could look like. It outlines the three main actions needed from government and national system leaders to secure the fundamental shift in approach: 1) support for people with multiple health conditions to live well 2) a drive towards the redesign of multiple conditions care 3) promotion of health in all policies.
