In this brief article Merron Simpson argues that whilst people using services do not necessarily see the boundaries between them, services are often provided in 'silos'.  Furthermore, traditional Care Pathways commonly address people’s medical conditions, but overlook the person as a whole.

The author explores the potential of moving to 'People Pathways' which contain only things that really matter to the individual and that span health, care, support, housing, community and the patient themselves in a single plan.  this could potentially happen without changing  the way services are paid for or who pays, except that it would bring funding streams together into a single plan that makes sense to the individual.
