This brief document provides an overview of what person-centred care is and why it is important.  It sets out how person-centred care is a way of thinking and doing things that sees the people using health and social services as equal partners in planning, developing and monitoring care to make sure it meets their needs and argues that it is a key component of developing high quality healthcare.

It describes nine aspects of person-centred care:

  • respecting people’s values and putting people at the centre of care
  • taking into account people’s preferences and expressed needs
  • coordinating and integrating care
  • working together to make sure there is good communication, information and education
  • making sure people are physically comfortable and safe
  • emotional support
  • involving family and friends
  • making sure there is continuity between and within services
  • and making sure people have access to appropriate care when they need it

It briefly sets out the policy framework for person-centred care as well as the evidence for a more person-centred approach to services, including the potential to improve people’s health and reduce the burden on services.  It describes four outcomes that it hopes more person-centred care will achieve:

  • improve the quality of the services available
  • help people get the care they need when they need it
  • help people be more active in looking after themselves
  • and reduce some of the pressure on health and social services

I am here to give my testimony about Dr Unuareghe who helped me cure my HERPES (HSV), i want to inform the public how i was cured from (HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS) by Dr Unuareghe, i visited different hospital but they gave me list of drugs like Famvir, Zovirax, and Valtrex which is very expensive to treat the symptoms and never cured me. Two months ago a friend suggested that I try Herbal Medicine; from a very powerful Herbal Doctor called Dr Unuareghe. I looked up his blog on the internet site and indeed he have had immense success with his product. There were lot of persons posting their testimony about how he cured them. when i contacted him he gave me hope and told me what i need to do an avoid during the treatment, after that He send a Herbal Medicine wish He called ROOTS an HERBS to me that i took and it seriously worked for me, my HERPES result just came out negative. My doctor was shocked how i got cured. I am so happy as i am sharing this testimony. My advice to you all who thinks that their is no cure for Herpes that is Not true just contact him and get cure from Dr Unuareghe Herbal Center. He can cure of all kinds of STD you may have. Remember your health is precious email him with his email dr.unuareghecuringhome@gmail.com or call him on His WhatsApp +2349067894643.

One thing i have come to discover is that when you are scared to confront your problem, a greater fear will come to wake you up or destroy you. It's a risk if you fail to take a risk. I was scared to give out money to any herbal doctor thinking they are all scammers when i had hsv1 but a greater fear came that made me contacted doctor osewe from Africa when my hsv1 transform to hsv2. he send all the necessaries to me and how to administer them so i did as he said and i was cured, If you are in bondage of any infirmity ? contact his email and be free according to your believe and mind set oseweagbonifo@gmail.com or call +2348135123287.. My little way of saving the world. hope it will be appreciated.
