The NHS is in crisis – it’s in record demand, and care services are at breaking point – but what if the solution to rescuing the NHS is in the hands of the patients themselves?

In this refreshingly positive and remarkable book, David Gilbert shares the powerful real-life stories of ‘patient leaders’ – ordinary people affected by life-changing illnesses, disabilities, or conditions, who have all gone back into the fray to help change the healthcare system in necessary and inspiring ways. Charting their diverse journeys – from managing to live with their condition, and their motivation to change the status quo, right through to their successes in improving approaches to health and social care – these moving and courageous stories aim to motivate others to take back control and showcase the pivotal importance of patients as genuine decision-making leaders.

Filled with hard-won wisdom and everyday heroism, The Patient Revolution challenges current discourse and sets out an empowering vision of how patient leaders can change the future of healthcare.
