The Care Pathway

The model of care informs a structured, person-centred care pathway where collaborative care enables genuine co-production of idiosyncratic plans of care. These individualised plans support people in our care to achieve their recovery and wellness goals and aspirations in the context of evidence-based care and interventions.

Boundaried therapeutic relationships underpin all interactions and interventions and provide a secure base for learning, development and recovery. All care and interventions are evidence-based, needs-led and individualised to ensure specific packages of care are delivered within a structured and time-limited care pathway.

The pathway is phased, it is flexible and allows for movement forwards and revision of previous phases as required by the individual to ensure optimal effectiveness of interventions offered.
