Your family care
We embrace the philosophy of holistic individualised care plans for all and we pride ourselves in the bespoke nature of our service. Our service is ‘safe care’ driven with the needs of the child and family at the forefront to achieve positive outcomes paramount.
Partnership in care with families is an integrated part of the provision of community care services. Focused Healthcare’s philosophy of listening promotes open and honest communication with children, young people and families, ensuring you are fully involved in decision making.
Following the ‘being open’ framework outlined in Regulation 20 means we can create a culture that supports care staff to act in an open and transparent way should an incident occur. Families will always have 24 hours access to Focused Healthcare nurses and performance assessments from families are an integral part of our clinical governance procedures.
Focused Healthcare believes in positive outcomes for all children and young people and our care plans reflect this. We will at all times respect family morals, values and beliefs and adhere to Casey’s model of practice whilst continuing to improve outcomes when working with hard to reach vulnerable families.
Personal Health Budget (PHB)
A personal health budget allows you to manage your child or young person’s healthcare and support provision of treatments, equipment and care in a way that suits your family.
Such a budget will not be right for everyone and it won’t always be the best way to receive support.
Where it is, Focused Healthcare are able to offer direct provision of support services such as:
• Preparing with the family a personal support plan
• Administration and budget reporting
• Appropriate training and clinical support
• Acting as an advocate for the family with commissioners.
Focused Healthcare experience as a provider of paediatric complex continuing care allows us help the family to implement a successful PHB where it is appropriate.
Self-funded care (SFC)
Not every family is eligible for a continuing care allowance and many families self-fund their own care. Focused Healthcare can help put a bespoke care plan in place for the family, ensuring you receive the best possible support.
Our Clinical Nurse Managers will act as an advocate for the family with the multi-agency bodies and signpost you to relevant support groups.
