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

First let me say thank you DR.SAMBO to the Resolve team for their tremendous support throughout this whole ordeal! I will tell you that even though I felt much better with signs and symptoms 16 days post detox, I still tested positive in March or this year and was disappointed, but after talking to the resolve team and uncovering that the thousands of dollars I wasted on herbal suppressants to burry the virus probably made it more difficult to eradicate. The resolve team suggested additional product I immediately shipped the (20 day booster detox) and immune booster. I followed their recommendations to the letter. More viruses came out of my body! I had more clearing symptoms. Resolve told me to get the PCR HSV 1 & 2 and the western Blot Elisa HSV 1& 2 blood tests at 4 to 6 weeks post booster. I think I waited 7 or 8 weeks to be sure. Well I went to my Doctor and he wrote out the script on the orders. As a matter of fact she had to add those tests, as they were not standard protocol on the order form. I went to the lab company and drew the blood. It took a while but I called TODAY and the nurse that answered the phone said that they had gotten the results earlier and the Dr. SAMBO signed off so he could tell me the results. Both tests came back NEGATIVE, NEGATIVE. Best day of my life in years. All I can say, is that upon individual situations, it may take longer to rid the virus from some people. Mine was 6 months. Yes, I will post the results very soon as I am going to the Dr.SAMBO. office to get a hard copy of the results. This is for real, I would not lie. Now, for the rest of my life, there is a happy ending after all. Billy,and Dr.SAMBO have done it for me and my family so happy now Email Drsamboherbalhome@gmail.com OR call Whats App NUMBER +2349033433639 He also have a herbal cure for Following DISEASES. -HIV AIDS -JOCK ITCH - HEPATITIS B -ALS -LOWER RESPIRATORY INFECTION -MRSA(METHICILLIN-RESISTANT STAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUS -ZIKA VIRUS -COPD -STROKE.

Do anyone still doubt natural herbs? I've seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful work they have done in people's lives. I wonder why people still spend their money on surgery, injections and drugs each time they are sick. Natural herbs can cure all kinds of illness including herpes, diabetics, asthma, HIV, hepatitis, etc. I've seen it with my own eyes. I was cured of Herpes and my aunt and her husband were cured of HIV by Dr. Tokubo who uses natural herbs to cure different kind of illness. Even Dr. Sebi prove to the whole world that natural herbs can cure all diseases and he cured countless of people using natural herbs. I know is hard to believe but am a living testimony. There is no harm in trying herbs. He is also a spell caster, he can cast a spell to restore your marriage back to normal, a good luck spell to prosper in life and excel in whatever you do in life. Contact or email Dr. tokubo on: drtokubotemple@gmail.com (phone/whatsap no): +2349037990322
