It means a focus on people with the most complex needs
It means giving up routine work that others can do[differently] e.g outpatient clinics
It means more flexibilty from all staff to break down professional boundaries
The focus needs to be on the service user experience and care pathway.
8. Education, training and Development
Staff are key to delivering person centred services.
User feedback suggests continued problems on being listened to, being respected, being influential in the care planning process.
Staff don’t always respect each other.
