The Rosamund Snow Community is open to people and carers of people, with long term health conditions who want to help improve healthcare services by working in partnership with the NHS and other health professionals.

Our aspiration is to build a national inclusive and vibrant People and Carer Community that will provide support to all Patient and Carer Leaders – that is, those who have experienced life-changing illness, injury or disability (including carers) and have experience of our health services and who want to improve health and health services through true equal partnerships with health professionals and organisations.

NHS Improvement recognised the need for a national partnership to support patient and carers in their work to improve health services.  In response to this the Rosamund Snow Community was created. The Rosamund Snow Community is named in recognition of Rosamund Snow’s tireless work to put patients centre-stage in improving healthcare. The community comprises of people and carers of people with Long Term Conditions, who want to help improve healthcare services by working in partnership with the NHS, other health professionals and hard to reach groups. We bring significant skills and knowledge, as people with clear insight and imagination to help solve the many issues plaguing the NHS today.  We want to develop an inclusive approach and would equally welcome those who are just starting their journey and are looking for reassurance and support in improvement / involvement work. The community helps to do this by connecting people, so that they can support each other to share expertise and knowledge and to further develop skills.
