About Liaison Care
We partner with continuing healthcare and social care teams to deliver independent, standardised, improved pathways, and reduce backlogs, to focus on recovery at pace.
Individual and representative engagement is embedded within Liaison Care’s operational policies and practices. This approach includes a named pathway coordinator who is assigned to the case and the individual/family member/chosen representative are advised of the coordinator’s contact details.
Liaison Care ensures a proactive attempt and encouragement to involve the individual and/or their family/representative in the CHC assessment process. There is formal acknowledgement of their views, e.g. via video/teleconference, or an opportunity to draft a statement for consideration during the assessment.
Liaison Care undertakes clinical quality assurance on each assessment or Decision Support Tool to achieve greater consistency in deciding a primary health need, providing individuals with confidence that their assessment is in line with the National Framework.
Liaison Care aim to provide a quality and expert service that is delivered in collaboration with our health and social care clients, ensuring professionalism and integrity in person-centred care and strength-based practice.
The Liaison Care Team has a wide range of CHC experts, including clinical and non-clinical staff, who have substantial experience in the health and social care sector.
Our clinical staff include nurses with experience of adults and childrens’ services at local and national level, and social workers and Allied Health Professionals at practice and director level. We also have a range of project managers, and process and business improvement specialists.
Our commitment to quality and excellence is supported by the feedback we receive from our NHS clients.
