The therapeutic team will support service users through the transition of moving into the hospital and provide ongoing assessment, intervention and support where required.
Staff are ambitious about the outcomes that service users can achieve and work hard to provide support opportunities for greater skill building, community participation and the move to greater independence.
- We follow the Care Programme Approach and provide an outcome focused care pathway detailing the person’s needs, positive goals and expected recovery time.
- This ensures that people are supported to develop their skills and move on to greater independence.
- We complement the skills of experienced, well trained, thoughtful and compassionate nursing teams and social care staff with support from our own multi-disciplinary team.
- We focus on the skills building framework. This ensures goals are set and the individual is supported to engage in activities that build confidence self-esteem and self-help skills. This in turn leads to greater skill building, enabling service users to manage their emotions and anxieties, use the coping mechanisms they have developed and achieve their goals. Developing greater independence and moving on to less restrictive environments is the focus of the skills building support.
- We work in partnership with local commissioners and to provide local services to local people and to support the repatriation of people to the least restrictive services that are near to their families and networks of support.
We continue to focus on clinical governance, quality assurance and improvement to ensure that all service users are safeguarded and the service delivered remains of a high quality.
