Principles behind the Models of Care Programme
The Models of Care Programme is built around eight guiding principles that all projects must strive to achieve.
Healthy communities: Supporting people to live healthy lives that will in turn reduce the preventable demand on health services
Skilled workforce: Developing a future workforce ready to meet health needs of our community.
Closer to home: Providing health services closer to where people live, learn, work and play.
Connected system: Integrating health services to make the patients’ health journey seamless and make health information easily available.
Equitable outcomes: Increasing effort where it is needed to deliver consistent health outcomes for the entire community.
Empowering people: Helping to inform people and empower them to proactively manage their health.
Easy to access: Removing barriers to make our health services easier to navigate and more accessible – particularly for vulnerable members of our community.
Sustainable: Ensuring all services are clinically and financially sustainable, environmentally conscious and are designed to meet the future health needs of our community.
