In this chapter, Mark Britnell looks at patient influence over healthcare. He analyses how healthcare providers and systems are beginning to understand the potential of helping patients to play a more active role in their own care. However, he argues that making this a reality requires overhauling the nature of the relationship between patients and staff and reskilling of both the staff and the patients. To be truly transformative, enabling patients to be partners in their own care means rethinking every step of the healthcare process, from how research is conducted to how services are designed, the offer made to patients, how decisions are taken, and how outcomes are judged. The alignment between what patients want and what is provided is often poor.
