  • Identify if individuals can step down or move to alternative community living and support such changes.
  • Support re-modelling/de-registration/de-commissioning of services.

Members of the team have stated that: - 

  • “it’s a really good opportunity to undertake comprehensive reviews and to work alongside a rage of different providers.” 
  • “We work alongside colleagues from other teams and have the opportunity to develop our professional curiosity, explore services in depth, and ensure good quality care and support for individuals”
