Collaborative working in health and social care delivers many benefits and opportunities both to the individual being supported and those who make up their network of support. By working in partnership with professionals, organisations and family members, social and healthcare providers are able to tailor approaches and services to meet the individual’s care and support needs – helping each person achieve their goals and aspirations.

As Trevor Mapondera, CEO, Nurseline Healthcare, comments: “Social care is at the forefront of employing innovative collaborative working practices which have a real benefit not only to the service users being supported and their loved ones, but also for everyone involved in the individual’s network of support.”

Research into the benefits of collaborative working has been undertaken by many respected institutions including Oxford University. The findings of one piece of research into collaborative working in healthcare, clearly demonstrates that patient outcomes, quality of care and the cost of care delivery are all optimised when an approach based on trust, respect and collaboration, focused on the care and support needs of the patient or person being supported, is employed.

Key benefits of collaborative working include:

  • sharing of knowledge, best practice, responsibility for planning, risk assessments and decision making
  • development of innovative approaches
  • reducing inefficiencies through integrated services and shared costs
  • Quality Assurance

Trevor continues: “At Nurseline, we ensure that we provide real ROI whilst consistently delivering high quality care and support. Everyone in The Nurseline Family – the people who work for us, with us, and who are supported by us – are able to benefit from the collaborative approaches we employ and the partnerships we have developed.”

This Autumn, Trevor will be speaking at an event in the South West where he will share his insights into the benefits of collaborative working.
