KEY LEARNING POINTS WELLCONNECTED PROJECT The importance of the team approach when working with this client group and of the skill mix of the team to providing a range of skills from Employment services and Health. The need for a robust Partnership agreement. The need for staff to remain connected to their original service to remain updated on relevant clinical or service developments. The need for flexibility of time spent with clients and location in which they are seen, particularly with the more debilitated clients. The need for staff to be experienced in their field and have good networking skills and local service knowledge. The benefit of direct access to some health services (which was not a feature of this project).
