Bringing Buurtzorg to Britain and Ireland

Public World is glad to be the partner in Britain and Ireland of Buurtzorg, collaborating with the ground-breaking provider of district nursing and home care in the Netherlands to apply its model internationally.

We are working with health and social care commissioners and providers in a dozen locations in England and Scotland to prepare and support self-organised neighgbourhood teams and tackle the organisational development challenges involved.

Four teams are already operating -- in London and Kent -- with several more on the way in other parts of England and in Scotland.

Here is a Municipal Journal article about our work in Suffolk, and more detail about our support to Scottish health and care organisations in partnership with Healthcare Improvement Scotland.

Want to know about Buurtzorg? Here's a great starter video of founder Jos de Blok's presentation at the RSA in London, when he accepted the prestigious Albert Medal, joining a long line of annual recipients that includes Marie Curie, Thomas Edison and Stephen Hawking.
