HEA3 (PP) - Supporting adults with health and social care needs

This policy is part of the Plymouth Plan which was approved by Plymouth City Council Full councillors on 27/02/2017.

The City will work together to deliver a health and wellbeing system which provides high quality services and care for those who need it by:

  1. Creating the opportunity through integrated services to give people more control over how their health, care and support is provided and ensuring people have a positive experience of the services and care they receive.
  2. Delivering high quality services that meet individual outcomes.
  3. Implementing a system of whole person care which delivers care and support in a way that makes sense to the person in the context of their whole life.
  4. Providing effective services to prevent harm, safeguard adults and ensure they are consulted and treated with dignity and respect.
  5. Supporting carers (unpaid/paid, adult/child) to carry out their caring role and have a full life outside of caring.
  6. Supporting people to manage their condition(s) to reduce their dependence on professional help.
