Unit 10 care practice and provision

Extracts from this document...


Pippa Douglas Unit 10 care practice and provision National organisations like National health service (NHS) that provide health care fit for the 21st century, is designed around the service user, so that they get the individual care they need. It is divided into 'primary' and 'secondary' services, Primary services are usually the first place people contact for health advice or treatment, the service is provided locally to the particular person's home by GPs, nurses or therapists and secondary health services are based in hospitals which provide medical or surgical care. They are provided and supported by the NHS national organisations called primary care trusts (PTCS). PCTS research areas from national websites such as statistics finding the census population numbers, and find out what the people of a particular area are lacking regarding health care, they deal with providing primary and community services, and commission secondary services. They do this in order to determine what the area needs to make sure that it can provide the people with adequate services to improve the health of the local people within the area. The national PCT received back over 140,000 of completed questionnaires, surveys and listening events form where they got some opinions, feedback and statistics. Local PCTS, working with the national PCTS, the NHS, and the council work together, to discover the needs of the local area. Local PCT work to identify the needs of that particular area. Social care and health care services will take the lead for certain aspects of the plan, through joint partnership. I am going to be looking at my local PCT, which is The Wokingham Primary Care trust (WPCT).Set up in 2001which serves 150,000 population, with a budget around �133m per annum to provide commission and services for Wokingham. Wokingham is a three start PCT. I will be looking into how the organisation is run and successful, what its plans are for Wokingham area, how it meets the local and individual needs, how WFPCT go about improving and providing evaluating and reviewing health care for Wokingham. ...read more.


This way of supervision would benefit the practitioners because they would be able to ask questions or queries when they meet for their meetings, they would be able to discuss how they are where they would need any help. Supervision would also benefit the services users like Johnny, as practitioners would feel more comfortable and confident in what they are doing, so that they can provide the best quality care for Johnny. Practitioners also need to be able to work around Johnny to meet his need. 'Flexible working'. Being adaptable to their work load around Johnny his needs are met and the practitioners are organised and up to date with the Johnny so that they can resume the care or referral they need. The referral system of Johnny where, Johnny can be referred where the practitioners see fit to refer, the service users i.e. to residential homes, GP's or psychiatrist. Johnny could self refer himself (self referral) where they feel they want to see a GP for example; Johnny makes the choice to go and see the GP. With the CTPLD there is a case load with any referral system where they have waiting lists which may leave some service users like Johnny waiting weeks, or months. CTPLD have some service users with more extreme cases and therefore would be put near the front of the case load or waiting list, the more the extreme the case the higher the service user goes up in the waiting list, they are prioritised. The referral system benefits the services user as they see a more experienced practitioner who specialises in a particular area and therefore gets specialised care. The practitioners benefit as they can refer service users as and when they need to enable the service users to get the best care possible. In order to keep the CTPLD on track with there service users like Johnny, they deal with have assessment process Johnny, the practitioners may have interviews with Johnny or interventions where they intervene find what the needs of Johnny are and try and find ways of dealing or helping with it. ...read more.
