Managing and Improving the System

Despite numerous reorganisations, health and social care organisations tend to be managed in a hierarchical functional way. Problems are usually addressed within Directorates or Departments. Service users experience services across the interfaces between departments/organisations. We have to live with our organisational structures, however, by developing a learning organisation and health and social care community approach to service delivery focused around the needs of the service user with new Primary Care Trust (PCT) commissioning and service improvement as the facilitators, we can overcome these problems.

This is where Care by Design can assist your organisation.
