This tool developed by Think Local Act Personal is aimed at leaders, commissioners, planners, clinicians and practitioners involved in designing and delivering personalised care and support planning for people with a variety of health and social care needs.
Through a series of case study scenarios, developed with people in the field, clinicians, social care managers, voluntary sector partners and people with lived experience of care, the resource demonstrates what different journeys through personalised care and support planning could look like when delivered through integrated and person-centred arrangements. It also begins to unpack many of the workforce, commissioning and organisational implications.
This is not a blueprint. Many decisions about service design and delivery will rightly be made locally, dependent on local conditions and circumstances, leading to a range of models that may be equally successful.
Rather it is intended to stimulate and inform these discussions, highlight the common principles that should underpin any local approach and demonstrate a variety of possibilities for local adaptation, while encouraging everyone with a stake in this work to aim high in their ambition.
