National Voices consultation - Principles of Care & Support Planning
Posted on: June 20 2013, 03:48 pm

Click here to read our Principles of Care and Support planning:
http://www.nationalvoices.org.uk/sites/www.nationalvoices.org.uk/files/care_and_support_planning_principles_for_consultation.pdf

Overview
Why do we need these Principles?
•   People with long term conditions and disabilities, and their carers, should be supported to live the lives they want to lead, and receive the treatment and care they identify and need.
•   Care and support planning recognises a person’s strengths and abilities and enables them to work with a professional to develop a single and coordinated plan to achieve agreed goals. It can offer a number of benefits, both for the people concerned and for the professionals they work with.
•   But National Voices’ members – health and social care charities - continue to feed back that care and support planning is often not yet happening in practice. 

What will the Principles do?
The principles will create a common understanding among people and professionals about care and support planning: what it is and how it works. We have worked closely with our members, a number of partners and patients, service users and carers to develop these.

Putting the Principles into practice
We will now develop an online tool. This will include further information on what each principle means, case studies, examples and templates of existing care and support plans and Q&A for people and professionals.

Share your views
We would welcome your views to shape and develop this piece of work:
•   Is there any aspect of care and support planning that you would like to see included in the principles or the online tool?
•   Are the principles clear and easy to use? If not, how could they be improved?
•   What information would you like to see included in the online tool to help put the principles into practice?
•   How else we can share the information included in the online tool with as many people as possible?

We would also very much welcome suggestions of case studies, templates/example care and support plans or other resources to link through to.

Please send any suggested content, thoughts on the Principles or the tool, or ideas about sharing the information they include to Laura (Laura.robinson@nationalvoices.org.uk) by Friday 19 July.
