1 Health Improvement Directorate The Story so far… Progress on Implementing the Healthcare Reference Group Strategy Jim McManus

2 Health Improvement Directorate The Context  The biggest, most secularised single health and social care system in the World  Huge crisis and change  1.3 million people  £60 billion  The non-NHS care systems

3 Health Improvement Directorate Why a Strategy? Obviously when charitable activity is carried out by the Church as a communitarian initiative, the spontaneity of individuals must be combined with planning, foresight and cooperation with other similar institutions. Deus Caritas Est,31

4 Health Improvement Directorate A Manifesto for Keeping Faith  … while professional competence is a primary, fundamental requirement, it is not of itself sufficient. We are dealing with human beings, and human beings always need something more than technically proper care. They need humanity. They need heartfelt concern.  Those who work for the Church's charitable organizations must be distinguished by the fact that they do not merely meet the needs of the moment, but they dedicate themselves to others with heartfelt concern, enabling them to experience the richness of their humanity.  Consequently, in addition to their necessary professional training, these charity workers need a “formation of the heart”: they need to be led to that encounter with God in Christ which awakens their love and opens their spirits to others.  As a result, love of neighbour will no longer be for them a commandment imposed, so to speak, from without, but a consequence deriving from their faith, a faith which becomes active through love (cf. Gal 5:6). Deus Caritas Est, 31
