The strategy provides a solid basis for Supportive & Palliative Care services to further develop. It identifies elements of a local model, which incorporates a vision, a set of underpinning principles and 30 high-level recommendations. The recommendations ensure focus and give direction to the most appropriate, effective areas where developments will enhance the high quality of Supportive & Palliative Care services across the City of Salford.
In order to implement the recommendations a detailed action plan/work programme for each year will be developed, monitored and evaluated. Consideration of the appropriate financial implications will be identified either within current resources or across other related budgets. This will be supported by a thorough project and change management process that ultimately aims to achieve the Vision for local people with Supportive & Palliative Care needs and their families/carers.
