Clinicians, carers, experts by experience and people from across Team SHSC came together to discuss the Clinical and Social Care Strategy at an engagement event on Tuesday at the Workstation.
It was an opportunity to hear updates from key speakers, take part in interactive sessions to learn more about the different pieces of work that are happening, and provide feedback and input into future plans.
Mike Hunter, executive medical director, opened the event talking about the background to the strategy and the core workstreams within it. He reminded attendees about what these are:
- Person-centred - considering the whole of a person and acknowledging that services need to fit around individuals and not be 'one size fits all’
- Evidence-led - using evidence to tailor interventions to people's needs and using evidence to support the care we provide
- Trauma-informed - asking what has happened to a person to understand what the positive steps might be to support them
- Strengths-based - seeing the things people are good at, not just their problems
- Work to be driven through meaningful coproduction running throughout it.
Mike spoke about how this is being implemented through layers of networks from a local level through to a whole city, and wider across the South Yorkshire system. The intention is to build fairness of experience and opportunity while tailoring to the specific needs of each area.
