Bringing together the clinical knowledge and expertise of professionals in partnership with the individuals knowledge of how their condition affects them and what works for them. The plan and the budget enables people to meet their needs in different ways, ways that work for them. Once it has been developed, the plan will be subject to clinical governance and sign off.
